Abstract

Concentration and dry + wet deposition of acidic atmospheric pollutants were determined in three Hungarian forestry monitoring stations between 1988 and 1992. Concentration of most important acidic compounds (sulfur and nitrogen dioxide) does not reach the critical level therefore forest decline as consequence of direct effects (foliar uptake through stomata) may be excluded. Total (dry + wet) deposition of acidic pollutants are 187 mg H + m -2 yr -1 as an average of three stations. The acidic load at Hungarian forestry stations frequently exceeds the critical value recommended by international organizations. Though concentration and deposition of atmospheric acidic compounds has considerably decreased in the recent years, futher monitoring of acid deposition in forests is necessarry because the accumulation effects of acid load to forest soil.
