Scientific uncertainty scuttles new acid rain standard

Environmental Science and Technology 29(10): 464A-466A

Scientific uncertainty scuttles new acid rain standard

A report by the USA Environmental Protection Agency on whether the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 adequately protect sensitive areas of the USA from acid rain, does not recommend a new 'acid deposition standard' to protect vulnerable areas because of scientific uncertainty mainly related to nitrogen deposition. Details of the report are discussed.
