Deposition of Atmospheric Pollutants

Authors


Abstract

Deposition of Atmospheric Pollutants, containing the proceedings of a colloquium held at Oberursel/Taunus, FRG, November 9–11, 1981, is divided into three main parts: dry deposition; wet deposition; and deposition on plants and vegetation.

The 20 articles in the volume permit a fair survey of present-day knowledge and will be a useful tool to all working on the topic. Pollution by deposition of either the dry or wet sort is very insidious; its importance only appears in the long range, when its effects are or are almost irreversible. That is why concern was so long in emerging from decision makers.
