Abstract

The meeting on models to describe ”The Geographic Extent and Time Evolution of Acidification and Air Pollution Damage” identified three major areas of discussion: 1) the assessment of lake sensitivity and classification of lake sensitivity; 2) the use of models in assessing extent and time evolution of acidification; and 3) the uncertainty in model predictions. This chapter summarizes the conclusions of these three discussion groups under the three headings. All of the discussion groups identified areas where further research is necessary and many of these areas were noted by more than one group. The topics are linked by the same data deficiencies, and all of the recommendations for future work are included here.
