This document is a review and assessment of the current scientific knowledge of the acidic deposition phenonemon and its effects. The areas discussed include both atmospheric (Volume I) and effects (Volume II) sciences. Specific topics covered are: natural and anthropogenic emissions sources; transport and transformation processes; atmospheric concentrations and distributions of chemical substances; precipitation scavenging and dry deposition processes; deposition monitoring and modeling; and effects of deposition on soils, vegetation, aquatic chemistry, aquatic biology, materials and human health, indirectly through ingested food or water. Each of the above topics is reviewed in detail using the available literature, with emphasis on U.S. data, and where possible, conclusions are drawn based on the available data.
