Abstract

Six monitoring sites operated on a weekly basis have been established to examine the impact of current emission reduction strategies on ionic concentrations and depositions in an acid sensitive sub-area of the Peak District. Present concentration and deposition values were compared to the monitoring results in the same area in 1988. On average, H* and nss-SO/" ion concentrations have dropped by approximately 60%, compared to their levels 10 years ago, and NCV has decreased by 30%. However, as the present precipitation amount is higher than that of 1988, I-T and nss-SO/" wet depositions have not decrea
