There are several important factors that may influence how forest canopies interact with acidic deposition, including forest community species composition, phenological status, and differences in atmospheric loading of strong acids. Results from comparative throughfall chemistry studies in New Hampshire, where precipitation pH is 4.1, indicate that northern hardwood canopies produce a throughfall solution chemistry that is less acid and higher in basic cations than either direct precipitation… CONTINUE READING
