Abstract

The work presents the results of a monitoring program designed to estimate dry deposition rates from field observations of the atmospheric concentrations of chemical species and elementary meteorological data near the ground. In particular we have measured wind and air temperature at 5.5 meters over the water level, air temperature, humidity, global and net radiation at 1.8 meters, and water temperature. At the same time, SO 2 concentrations were recorded and the dry deposition of SO 2 from the atmosphere to water in the Venice lagoon was evaluated. 1. Introduction The dry deposition of gases and particulates are processes of great importance that affect both the dynamic
