Abstract

The Gothenburg Protocol to Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground- level Ozone was adopted on 30 November 1999. The Protocol sets emission ceilings for 2010 for four pollutants: SO2, NO x , VOC s and NH3. Emissions reduction of SO2, NO x and NH3 for the time period 1990 to 2010 have been estimated over Europe by (UN/ECE, 1999). To consider the effect of these changes on the British Isles, the FRAME model is applied here to model deposition of sulphur and nitrogen considering the implementation of the Gothenburg Protocol scenario of emissions for 2010 throughout the British Isles and Europe.
