Acid Deposition Sensitivity of the Southern Appalachian Assessment Area
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_Acid_Deposition

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The Acid Deposition Sensitivity of the Southern Appalachian Assessment Area is
a project that studies areas having various susceptibilities to acid deposition
from air pollution which are designated on a three tier ranking in the region
of the Southern Appalachian Assessment (SAA). The assessment is being conducted
by Federal agencies that are members of the Southern Appalachian Man and
Biosphere (SAMAB) Cooperative. Sensitivities to acid deposition, ranked high,
medium, and low are assigned on the basis of bedrock compositions and their
associated soils, and their capacities to neutralize acid precipitation. The
data is available in Arc/Info export format.
