The National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program concluded (NAPAP, 1991) that direct above ground impacts of acidic deposition at present levels are not expected in low-elevation forest systems, but detrimental effects on some high-elevation eastern forests appear likely. NAPAP also concluded that long-term changes in the chemistry of some sensitive soils are expected, but data were not available at the time to determine whether this would result in reduced forest health or how long it would take for such an effect to occur. The question of the importance of acidic deposition as a factor affecting forest health via the soil remained a significant research and policy issue. This report provides a critical review of the scientific literature dealing with the extent to which acidic deposition may be causing changes in soil chemical properties and the potential for such changes to affect forest trees. Particular attention was paid to large-scale research programs which addressed these issues directly.
