Abstract/Summary

A model of the combined long-term effects of acidic deposition and forest growth has been developed. The model indicates that afforestation can increase the strong mineral acidity of streams in areas receiving high levels of acidic oxides from the atmosphere. Deforestation promotes a rapid decrease in acidity, although the soil base saturation recovers slowly
