Effects of nitrogen deposition on the acidification of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems


This concentration of ammonium and nitrate in precipitation has increased during this century. The deposition of nitrogen compounds (wet+dry) is a mean reaching 30-40 kg/ha and year in central Europe and above 20 kg in southern Sweden. In areas with high deposition an increased outflow is observed. The increased output is an indication of a nitrogen saturation of the ecosystem and it will lead to acidification effects due to nitrate leaching
