Evaluation of Dry Deposition, Pollutant Damage, and Forest Health with Throughfall Studies

  • Geoffrey G. Parker


This chapter summarizes some of the burgeoning literature on the alteration of precipitation chemistry by forest canopies, with emphasis on canopy buffering of acidic precipitation and the influence of dry deposited pollutants on throughfall chemistry. Field studies involving forest trees are emphasized, although reference is made to the literature on crop species, and that on laboratory experiments, where necessary.
