Estimation of Wet and Dry Deposition of Pollutant Sulfur in Eastern Canada as a Function of Major Source Regions

  • J. D. Shannon
  • E. C. Voldner


The contributions of major anthropogenic source regions to wet and dry deposition of total S in eastern Canada are estimated for a winter month and a summer month with the ASTRAP model. Results indicate that the U.S. and Canada contribute approximately equal amounts to total S deposition in Canada; Canadian sources contribute more than one half of dry deposition and less than one half of wet deposition.
