In 1975 at the First International Symposium on Acid Precipitation and the Forest Ecosystem in Ohio, we summarized the changes relative to sulfur, nitrogen and hydrogen ion input in precipitation during 1964 to 1974 for the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire (Likens et al. 1), In some ways this paper is an update of those data.
