The National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program created the Forest Response Program (FRP) to assess the effects of acidic deposition on trees and forests in regions of the United States. Research from the FRP and other programs is summarized in four Major Program Output documents that address policy questions regarding forest condition, mechanisms of effects of air pollutants, and projected responses of pollutants on forests. The document summarizes information available up to February, 1990. The major findings include several observations on mechanisms of effect. There is evidence that supports the hypothesis that acidic deposition alters soil chemical properties.
