Acid deposition is widely recognized as one of the most serious global atmospheric pollution problems. Regional scale, international actions to tackle this problem have been taken in Europe and North America. East Asian countries also face a potential regional scale, international acid deposition problem, and have recently started to expand their monitoring activities as a result.
