Effect of acid deposition and natural soil acidification processes on soil: some studies in the Tillingbourne Catchment, Leith Hill, Surrey

, : Effect of acid deposition and natural soil acidification processes on soil: some studies in the Tillingbourne Catchment, Leith Hill, Surrey. Seesoil Journal of the South East England Soils Discussion Group 2: 18-36

Data are presented on (a) deposition rates for H+, SO42-, NO3-, Cl-, NH4 + and organic acids and (b) soil acidity resulting from acid precipitation, dry deposition, nitrification, decomposition, respiration, S2- oxidation, plant uptake, bog growth and organic matter accumulation from other sources.

The mechanism whereby acid deposition can cause acidification of surface waters via equilibrium processes in soil solution was investigated using chemical equilibrium models.

Johnson, D.W., 1987: A discussion of the changes in soil acidity due to natural processes and acid deposition. In very acid soils, soil solution acidity can change rapidly in response to inputs of sulfate; however there is little evidence of rapid change in bulk soil acidity due to acid deposition except where acid inputs are very high. Over many decades,...
