Research overview:
The acid rain is observed at various points, and border crossing pollution expanding is anticipated, and enforcement of observation for the influence to forest and torrent is necessary. Observation for falling water, investigation of decline degree of forest, and water quality monitoring of water source basin, are continuously achieved at 8 observing points in the whole country. Monitoring points are set for concerning execution influences like clear cutting and trimming, which comprehensive influences are anticipated by acidic fallout material to forest and torrent, and basic investigations for location environment and vegetation at surface layer, are achieved. The information obtained by this study concerning forest, falling rain, and torrent water quality, are analyzed with information of monitoring project of the Forest Agency, to grasp the environmental variations in forest region of this country, and to observe and elucidate comprehensively the influences of acidic fallout and execution to forest ecosystem and soil and water quality.
