REVERSIBILITY OF ACIDIFICATION
The workshop reported in this volume reviewed knowledge of the effects on aquatic ecosystems of changes in atmospheric deposition of acidifying components, in particular to examine the question of whether aquatic ecosystems will recover from acidification once acidifying depositions are reduced. Emphasis is given to modelling of the expected effects of reduced atmospheric sulphur and nitrogen deposition. Land-use changes as they relate to the effects of changes in deposition are also taken into account, but mitigation by measures such as liming was excluded from the topics covered by the workshop. The papers include both theoretical and experimental research results. The workshop was held under the auspices of the COST programme (European Cooperation in Science and Technology), one of the main aims of the workshop being to identify possible fruitful areas of cooperation within this research topic which could be pursued within the COST framework.
