Knowledge of dry deposition is limited by the inability to make the necessary measurements in other than special circumstances. The need to generate confidence in the available measurement techniques was emphasized. There is need for more frequent collocation of experiments and for more collaboration of researchers. Discussions among the specialist groups focused attention on the greatly dissimilar experimental constraints associated with different techniques. A summary of relevant considerations is given. Extreme difficulties arise when trying to conduct a side-by-side comparison of all of the available methods. In all cases there is need to improve measurement methods. This developmental effort is presently underway, but augmentation is required. The present focus on questions regarding so-called acidic deposition is too confining to permit a broad-based attack on the overall problem of air pollution in the context of energy and agricultural options. A program developed in response to questions concerning acidic deposition should not be expected to address questions arising in other contexts. The acid deposition concern is real and immediate, and if carefully arranged the research program generated to provide the most urgently desired answers could also constitute an entry into a longer-term investigation of broader issues. 34 refs., 3 tabs.
