Abstract

The present volume gives a comprehensive résumé of the research work carried out by the GKSS Research Centre Geesthacht at a forest site in North Germany during the period 1986 to 1992. The study was performed within the framework of the so-called Postturm project. Central objectives were to generate extensive data sets on air quality including trends and pollutant source-receptor relationships, to investigate the interaction of atmospheric constituents with the forest ecosystem compartments and thus to provide a reliable basis for the assessment of possible impacts on the state of health of the forest.
