Recognising this, governments have instituted programmes to reduce emissions of SO2, and NOx, the major sources of acid rain. But is this enough? Will ecosystems damaged by acid rain recover? And if they do, how quickly? What ecosystem processes determine the rate of recovery?

Hans Hultberg, Richard Skeffington. This book describes the results of the Covered Catchment Project at Gardsjon in Sweden in which a large roof has been erected under a forest canopy to shelter the soil from the acid rain that falls in that area. The project has important implications for emission control policy.

Effect on Soil: Acid rain highly impacts on soil chemistry and biology. It means, soil microbes and biological activity as well as soil chemical compositions such as soil pH are damaged or reversed due to the effects of acid rain

Effect on Soil: Acid rain highly impacts on soil chemistry and biology. It means, soil microbes and biological activity as well as soil chemical compositions such as soil pH are damaged or reversed due to the effects of acid rain. The soil needs to maintain an optimum pH level for the continuity of biological activity. When acid rains seep into the soil, it means higher soil pH, which damages or reverses soil biological and chemical activities. Hence, sensitive soil microorganisms that cannot adapt to changes in pH are killed. High soil acidity also denatures enzymes for the soil microbes.

Acid deposition is considered to be one of the greatest threats to the environment in industrialised countries. Recognising this , governments have instituted programmes to reduce emissions of SO2, and NOx, the major sources of acid rain. But is this enough? Will ecosystems damaged by acid rain recover? And if they do, how quickly? What ecosystem processes determine the rate of recovery? Do acidification models give accurate predictions? Are any other actions necessary to promote recovery? To answer such questions without waiting for the results of current policies, scientists in Sweden and the UK decided to eliminate acid deposition on an acidified ecosystem altogether, and monitor the effects. They did this by constructing a huge roof over an acidified catchment near Lake G?rdsjon in Southwest Sweden. Acid rain falling on the roof is diverted away, and replaced with clean rain. The detailed responses of the ecosystem are measured. This book records the results from the first five years of the Project, and considers the implications for emission control. The book describes the effect of eliminating acid deposition (and some other pollutants) on vital ecosystem processes both chemical and biological and how the predictions of acidification and hydrological models compared with experimental results. It describes the covered catchment, how the roof was constructed and the problems associated with such large experiments. The implications for pollution control policies, and what still needs to be discovered, are emphasised. The book should be of interest to a wide variety of environmental scientists, especially those interested in pollution effects, forestry, freshwater fisheries, and ecosystem function, and to environmental managers and policymakers.
