Abstract

A computationally efficient atmospheric chemical transport model (FRAME) was used to generate source-receptor concentration and deposition data from a variety of spatially distributed and point sources of nitrogen and sulphur emissions. The model was evaluated by comparison with measurements of nitrogen compounds in the gaseous, particulate and aqueous phase and found to be fit for purpose as a policy tool for assessing the effects of future emissions controls. A scenario for the year 2030 predicted that 64 % of the area of natural ecosystems in the UK would be subject to deposition of nitrogen exceeding critical loads.
