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).
