Fine spatial-scale measurements of acidic deposition have been made over two time frames: 1987/1988 and 1999/2000. Over this period, dramatic reductions in precursor emissions have occurred. The two sets of data are compared in order to quantify deposition reductions. Orographic enhancement of wet deposition from the seeder-feeder mechanism is important in the UK at high-elevation sites such as these and the measurements were corrected for this process using a standard methodology. The data were also modelled using a simple long-term Lagrangian acid deposition model and comparisons made with both sets of observations at a resolution of 5 km _ 5 km. Future scenarios (2010) of emissions were modelled to examine the impact of UK and other European sources in order to determine optimal protection of ecosystems in this region.
