Long-term (2005–2014) trends in formaldehyde (HCHO) columns across North America as seen by the OMI satellite instrument: Evidence of changing emissions of volatile organic compounds

We find significant regional trends related to decreases in urban anthropogenic VOC emissions and increases in oil/gas production.
