The Atmospheric Sciences Research Center of the State University of New York-Albany organized and hosted a workshop which specifically addressed the need, design and implementation of research, development and monitoring with advanced techniques for these purposes: (a) to identify the contribution of acidic and non-acidic pollutant deposition to damage of forests on mountain peaks; and (b) to monitor air and cloud chemical quality in regional transport winds for possible source-receptor model evaluation. This report presents the results of the workshop which was held on April 5-7, 1984. The international aspect of this workshop involved Canadian and European scientists and institutions. The workshop participants recommended the establishment of a research and monitoring network extending from the Smoky Mountains to the Laurentian Mountains where forest and atmospheric scientists can study and test in detail the major hypotheses that have been developed in attempts to explain the current decline of forests.
