The goal of this study was to examine previously unanswered questions concerning potential effects of the proposed Atikokan, Ontario power plant on ecosystems in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCA) and Voyageurs National Park (VNP) of Minnesota by using the most relevant data and analytical methods. The principal steps were to focus on: (1) the ultimate deposition of emissions from the plant (rather than only on pollutant concentrations), (2) the use of a time-varying grid model with provision for atmospheric transformations, and (3) a detailed review of all available data from the region on atmospheric deposition of pollutants, water quality, and effects. The results are considered in relation to a review of responses by terrestrial and aquatic organisms to changes in the chemistry of this environment.
