    Measurements of the concentrations of nitrogen compounds in air and precipitation in the UK have been made since the mid-19th century, but no networks operating to common protocols and having traceable analytical procedures were established until the 1950s. From 1986 onwards, a high-quality...

    The dry deposition velocity of fine particles is usually on the order of several tenths of cm s-1, and accordingly, the concentration gradient of particles above the surface is very small. This makes the application of the gradient method to the determination of the particle deposition velocity...

    Aerodynamically designed surrogate surfaces were used to determine the relative importance of gaseous (SO2, HNO3, NH3) and particulate species (SO42-, NO3-, NH4+, Ca2+) in the dry deposition flux. For 11 sampling periods, we measured the deposition fluxes, ambient gaseous concentrations, size...

    A characteristic of daily acid deposition data, in particular at remote sites, is the occurrence of some extreme peaks above the base level of moderate values. A large proportion of the annual acid deposition is accumulated in a few days: 5 worst days at the Finnish background stations can bring...
