Atmospheric deposition of acid and other materials may pose a significant threat to some soils and the ecosystems they support. The project objective was to develop maps of the eastern United States that delineate soil areas according to their expected sensitivity to the effects of acid precipitation. Four parameters are important in estimating soil sensitivity to acid precipitation: (1) The total buffering capacity or cation exchange capacity; (2) the base saturation; (3) the management system imposed on the soil; and (4) the presence or absence of carbonates in the soil profile.
