Since the start of the 1980's, study has persevered to explain and increase our realizing of the problern of the ecological impression of acidic precipitation. From September 15-20, 1985, Canada convened the the Muskoka Symposium on Acidic Precipitation to study development and support chart the path of destiny experiences. The convention was once held in important Ontario, Canada, a sector 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 provided. approximately two hundred of the papers are integrated in those court cases, which tagether provide the current state-of-the-art of acid rain examine. The convention taken with atmospheric technological know-how and aquatic and terrestrial results. i've got made a few normal observations on growth in clarifying concerns and linkages among those components of study. Out­ status matters which require greatly extra paintings are pointed out. those are my perspectives, stimulated through own bias and restricted by means of my services. Atmospheric Seiences 3 facets have been lined: size thoughts, the particular degree­ ments, and source-receptor relationships.

The vegetation of the Lake Gardsjon catchment consists of mature mixed coniferous forests and 10 to 20-yr old clear fellings. The total catchment is divided into five lake subcatchments and one stream subcatchment. 0 and clear water with Secchi depths >6 m. Monitoring of the water chemistry in Lake Gardsjon started in early 1970's. During the period 1971 to 1977 the sulphate concentration ranged 12 to 15 mg'L- 1 but dropped to 9 to 11 mg'L-l during 1980 to 1984 (Figure 2). This ~20% drop may coincide with reductions in S emissions in Sweden and other European countries during the last 5 to 8 years.

No adverse effects were reported up to 1980. Inventories of forest vitality in terms of needle loss or crown density as well as tree growth have been made in parts of Norway and the whole of Sweden. For Norway spruce, needle loss was found to increase with tree age and climatic stress with increasing latitude and altitude. However, decreased crown density was also reported for SW Sweden. Needle loss is a non-specific signal not reacting to air pollution alone. Direct effects of gases such as S02 are not likely to occur, but high episodic levels of 03 have been measured at a level possibly leading to chronic injuries.
