Abstract

The Influence of Far Located Sources to the Acid Deposition on the European Countries A contribution to subproject GLOREAM M Sofiev Stroiteley str., 4 - 1 -18, Moscow, 117311, Russia Introduction It is known that European anthropogenic sources of oxidised sulfur and nitrogen create almost 100 % of the acid depositions in Europe. The influence of remote sources is negligible. At the same time, high ecosystem sensitivity in some regions makes such a simple mass balance consideration not fully correct. For some territories like northwestern Europe or the European territory of Russia, the influence of the emission sources located outside Europe may be considerable. Corresponding impact can be evaluated only by mathematical models because measurements normally do not give any information about the origin of the pollution. Several measures for the reduction of the European emission of acidifying pollutant
