About this book

The report describes the results and conclusions of the third phase of the Dutch Priority Programme on Acidification carried out from 1991 to 1994. The results of the scientific research are described in detail in the final reports of the individual projects. Umbrella theme reports have been prepared on deposition, stand modelling and effects on forests.
