(9J^, JPJO^DoMaf, France Introduction Acid deposition remains a potentially serious ecological problem in Europe. Considered as one of the causes of forests dying and decline in fish populations in mountain streams, this pollution is primarily due to the long-range transport of acidic species (H:SO4 and HNCW stemming from the SO: and NOx emissions. To establish an international control strategy of anthropogenic emissions which leads to a decrease the acidity of precipitation, it is necessary to identify the source-receptor relationships that give rise to the concentratio
