Abstract

Using data from Eskdalemuir, Scotland, UK, it is shown that time trends in sulphate and nitrate deposition may differ in response to the influence of changes in precipitation amount. As a result, a change in precipitation amount alone will produce changes in the relative sulphate and nitrate deposition levels, even if other parameters, e.g. relative emission rates, remain constant. Consequently, any assessment of nitrate/sulphate deposition should consider climatic as well as emission factors.-R.K.H.
