USGS Atmospheric Deposition Program Publications (USGS authors and coauthors) Patterns of acid deposition variability in the Eastern United States, ical Survey Open-File Report , 13p.   Acid rain has become a major environmental concern, the current extent of which is illustrated in this paper. Maps of both pH and H+ deposition in precipitation have been developed for the continental United States by analyzing laboratory pH data from nine precipitation chemistry networks and two single stations spread across the continental United States Cited by: Acidic Deposition in the Northeastern United States: Sources and Inputs, Ecosystem Effects, and Management Strategies Chapter (PDF Available) in BioScience 51(3) January with Reads. Concentrations of sulfate (SO) and free hydrogen ions (H+) in precipitation decreased from 10% to 25% over a large area of the Eastern United States from through as compared to the previous year (−) reference period. These decreases were unprecedented in magnitude and spatial extent. In contrast, nitrate (NO3-) concentrations .

Ambient sulfate aerosol concentrations in eastern United States exhibit strong seasonal variations and this variability is reflected in visibility measurements. The summertime maximum in sulfate aerosol and light extinction can be seen not only in the average of data over many sites but also in data for almost any rural eastern location. biology chapter Terms in this set (38) the background species extinction rate. estimates how quickly species disappeared before human intervention. which of the following is not one of the worlds endangered species. Global and synoptic-scale weather patterns controlling wet atmospheric deposition over central Europe and over the eastern United States. circulation patterns in agroclimate variability in.

An alternative hypothesis that lake acidification has been caused much less by acid deposition than by changes in land use, notably regrowth of forests after cutting, was proposed by Rosenqvist ()in Norway Rosenqvist ()and by Krug and Frink ()in the United by: high acid deposition. Total annual sulfur deposition on the Monongahela National Forest is the late s ranged from 19 kg/ha at the lower elevations, to 26 kg/ha at high elevations (Adams et al. ). Few areas of the United States showed higher sulfur deposition than was found on the Forest. Current monitoring results show.
