Methodology for Mapping Local Scale Deposition of Acidifying Components over Europe
Current methods and models for estimating deposition of acidifying components differ largely in the used horizontal resolution i.e. varying from 5x5 km (Erisman,1992) up to 150x150 km (EMEP, Iversen et al. 1991). In describing the effects of acidification on the level of ecosystems, acid loads should be available at least on the size of ecosystems. No deposition maps on this resolution are available leaving a serious gap in estimating exceedences of critical loads in Europe.
