This two-volume report, designed to address the present status of knowledge about the acidic deposition and its effects was requested by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASCA) of EPA's Science Advisory Board. Volume II studies the effects of acidic deposition on the natural and managed environments, addresses the logic behind the wide-spread public concern about acidic deposition and presents reasons which support or negate those concerns. Special attention is given to quantitative information on the magnitude and extent of effects where possible. A lack of quantitative cause and effect data, in itself, defines the state of knowledge in many of the research areas.
