Abstract

Monthly rainfall analysis are available for Rothamsted and the surrounding area since 1853. Long records exist for HN3, NO3 and Cl, while SO4 and pH measurements are less complete. The most striking change over the period is a shift in the seasonal distribution of the nitrate in the rain which has changed the deposit from less than 0.1 g m-2 yr-1 in the mid-19th century to about 0.2 g m-2 yr-1 at present. The pH, initially 4.7 in 1930, starts to decline only recently by about 0.5 in the last 10-15 years.- from Authors
