This specific factor of Water, Air, and Soil pollutants deals unique contributions from BIOGEOMON, The 3rd foreign Symposium on atmosphere habit, which used to be hung on the campus ofVillanova college from June 21-25, 1997. past conferences have been held in Prague in 1987 and back in 1993. The BIOGEOMON sequence was once initiated in 1987 whilst a gaggle of researchers from the Czech Geological Survey equipped a convention referred to as GEOMON, Geochemical tracking in consultant Basins. GEOMON used to be rather narrowly interested by tracking of point swimming pools and fluxes on a small watershed scale. As signalled by means of the switch in identify to BIOGEOMON, the second one convention explicitly famous that overview of anthropogenic results on atmosphere techniques calls for a mix of geochemical tracking with different techniques, together with watershed-level manipulations, use of radioactive and sturdy isotopic tracers, and either empirical and method modeling. The 1997 BIOGEOMON convention used to be the most important, with over 240 contributors from 28 international locations on 5 continents in attendance, and broadest in scope. The convention featured a plenary speaker, six keynote audio system, 35 invited audio system, over 60 oral contributed displays, and over seventy five poster presentations.

Example text

The A-scenario ('Best prediction') resulted in a slower response than the B-scenario. In many cases, this emission reduction for S was enough to stop continued soil acidification, although significant improvement was not always shown. For Afon Hafren, the simulations of MAGIC and SMART again indicate continued acidification (as well as SMART for Forellenbach) using this scenario. , 1991 ). Dynamic models therefore are needed in addition to the steady-state techniques that presently are used for mapping of critical loads and their exceedance, for the assessment of emission reduction policies.

Uncertainties involved in deriving the large amount of input data required by these regionalized models (by the use of transfer functions and/or statistical distributions). Hence, site-specific dynamic model applications, based on detailed, measured high resolution data, are useful for the development and assessment of emission reduction policies as a complement to regional/national mapping and modeling approaches. The present study describes the application ofthree well-known dynamic acidification models (MAGIC, SAFE, SMART) to data sets from Integrated Monitoring sites in Europe.

Other wet and dry anthropogenic components were dependent on deposition histories, calibrated to the 24 M. FORSIUS ET AL. present measurements of one year. The S deposition history for 1880-1991 was extracted from data by Mylona (1993) for each 150 km x 150 km grid cell (the so-called EMEP grid) separately. The earlier scaling was extended back to 1800 using an average estimate for Europe by Sverdrup eta/. (1995). Average N deposition histories for the whole ofEurope were estimated on the basis of work by Sverdrup eta/.
