By G.J. Heij, J.W. Erisman

The publication starts with an summary of the learn themes which have been addressed within the 3 assorted levels of the Dutch precedence application on Acidification (DPPA), finished among 1985 and 1994. This bankruptcy is by way of a bankruptcy which offers with the emissions of acidifying ingredients, the concentrations and the deposition to wooded area and nature conservation components. Prognoses are given for the acid deposition in 2000 and 2010; the deposition within the international locations surrounding the Netherlands is additionally pointed out. the diversities within the result of the DPPA-II are analysed.The 3rd bankruptcy bargains with the results of publicity and cargo on forests. The bankruptcy strikes from small-scale to large-scale: first the results in laboratory-scale stories are defined, then the consequences within the box, either at stand point and on a local scale. moreover, the severe thresholds (critical point of focus and demanding load of deposition) are discussed.The fourth bankruptcy covers terrestrial ecosystems (or components thereof) in addition to weakly buffered floor waters, springs and different streams. severe degrees and lots also are mentioned. an important effects are given in bankruptcy 5.In the appendices of the booklet, so-called umbrella topic reviews on deposition, stand modelling and results on forests are awarded which describe in additional element the clinical paintings played within the 3rd part of the DPPA.This booklet could be of curiosity to someone curious about examine regarding acidification and eutrophication; i.e., not just those that practice the study within the causal chain from emissions to results, but additionally policy-makers and scholars.

After 1980 the national mean SO2 concentration declined, but it has remained stable for the last few years.

10 for 1993. The deposition is higher in some areas than in the rest of the country. 2): both the industrial Rijnmond area, with its higher deposition of SO`` and the densely populated Randstad with high SO, and NOy deposition are striking. Furthermore, a higher deposition has been calculated for urban areas and for forest areas because of their greater surface roughness compared with the average in The Netherlands. Greater surface roughness mainly leads to increased dry deposition of very soluble gases such as NH 3, SO2, HNOz and HNO3.

However, because of its low deposition rate and relatively slow conversion rate into rapidly deposited gases (HNO3, HNO2), the NO• is transported over relatively large distances before it disappears from the atmosphere. SO2 is quickly converted to sulphuric acid (H2504) after deposition, both in water and soil. NO• and NH 3 and their subsequent products contribute to the eutrophication of the environment and also to the acidification of the environment as a result of conversion to nitric acid (HNO3) in the air (NOx) or in the soil (NH3).
