Annual Variation of Wet Deposition at Non-Urban Sites in Central Europe
Precipitation chemistry data from a network operated by the Federal Environmental Agency in the FRG are used for discussing the annual variation of hydrogen ion, sulfate, nitrate, and ammonium deposition in Central Europe from 1982 to 1988. Except for the coastal station, deposition rates are generally highest in late spring, while the precipitation amount does not show an evident annual variation. Differences in deposition between low level sites and the mountain station are most pronounced during the first half year. Later on the mountain site deposition rates decrease to the amount which is deposited at the low level stations, despite continuing high amounts of precipitation.
