Since the start of the 1980's, learn has persevered to elucidate and increase our figuring out of the problern of the ecological effect of acidic precipitation. From September 15-20, 1985, Canada convened the the Muskoka Symposium on Acidic Precipitation to check development and support chart the path of destiny stories. The convention was once held in critical Ontario, Canada, a quarter of heavy sulphate deposition the place aquatic results are glaring. nearly seven-hundred humans attended, over 500 of whom have been examine scientists. Over four hundred papers have been awarded. approximately 2 hundred of the papers are incorporated in those court cases, which tagether supply the current state-of-the-art of acid rain examine. The convention excited by atmospheric technological know-how and aquatic and terrestrial results. i've got made a few basic observations on growth in clarifying concerns and linkages among those parts of study. Out­ status matters which require very much extra paintings are pointed out. those are my perspectives, stimulated via own bias and constrained by means of my services. Atmospheric Seiences 3 points have been coated: size options, the particular degree­ ments, and source-receptor relationships.

Norway, 16-20 September 1981. In the upper corner, 96 h, 850 mb back trajectories for the sampling period 18-19 September at Birkenes. The hatched area has a mean S02-emission intensity exceeding 10 mg S-2 . , 1982). The formation of 03 and other photochemical oxidants in the troposphere, involves emissions of NOx and volatile organic compounds. Although research on photochemical oxidants seems to be at an earlier stage of development than research on acid deposition, there is evidence that large-scale formation and transport of 03 is important.

9 over the period 1970 to 1982 when the lake was limed (Figure 1). The development of acidification was reconstructed by the diatom stratification of the lake sediment (Renberg and Wallin, 1985). D. 7 has occurred. Soot particles from coal and oil burning appeared in the lake sediments from mid 1800 but increased rapidly after the 1940's (Renberg and Wik, 1985). The increased burning of oil and coal in the north European countries after the second world war caused severe air pollution of S compounds and soot particles.
