Abstract

Although there are clear links between acidic deposition and synoptic meteorology1, the effects of climatic change have been largely neglected. It is demonstrated here that long-term variations in the atmospheric circulation and associated changes in trajectory characteristics on timescales of years and longer can affect deposition levels within the United Kingdom, masking the effects of changing emissions. This study provides empirical support for the suggestion that climatic change may need to be considered in the assessment of emission control strategies2. © 1986 Nature Publishing Group.
