This book contains the results and conclusions of extensive
research on the causes and effects of acidification of
forests/forest soils and heathland in the Netherlands. In 1985 the
Dutch Priority Programme on Acidification was started in order to
give a more concrete form to the increasing interest of
policy-makers in the effects of air pollution on ecosystems in
In the last three years, the research has focused on obtaining a
more accurate estimate of the emission of ammonia on the deposition
of SOx, NOy and NHx, and also on quantifying effects on forest and
heathland ecosystems. This quantification of effects included
experimental work model analyses, and derivation of critical loads
and levels for forest and heathland ecosystems. Furthermore,
scenario analyses were made with the Dutch Acidification Systems
Model (DAS) in order to evaluate the effectiveness of policy
The research itself, which formed the basis for this book, has been
described in the reports on individual projects. A summary of the
scientific results and conclusions is given in thematic reports
(added as annex). An independent Review Team has provided a
critical assessment of the research carried out since 1988. The
Review Report has been incorporated as annex.
