Several lines of research on the effects of acidic deposition have been supported by EPA through its Environmental Research Laboratories and through a Cooperative Agreement with North Carolina State University. The study reported here was carried out as a subcontract to the Institute of Ecology from N.C. State University for research supporting programs at the Environmental Research Laboratory-Duluth. The objectives included review of existing literature on the use of indices for quantifying resource status and predicting long-term trends in relation to acidic deposition, review of options as to the form of a 'sensitivity index' or loading tolerance model for use in determining resources at risk, and identification of validation steps needed to complete testing of the measure or model, and to begin its application.
