Manual for Dynamic Modelling of Soil Response to Atmospheric Deposition, 2003

Abstract

The objective of this manual is to inform the network of National Focal Centres (NFCs) about the requirements of methodologies for the dynamic modelling of geochemical processes, especially in soils. This information is necessary to support European air quality policies with knowledge on time delays of ecosystem damage or recovery caused by changes, over time, of acidifying deposition.

This Manual has been requested by bodies under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) to support the extension of the European critical load database with dynamic modelling parameters. A Very Simple Dynamic (VSD) model is described to encourage NFCs to meet minimum data requirements upon engaging in the extension of national critical load databases.
This manual can be consulted in combination with a running version of VSD, which is available on the CCE-website. The report also provides an overview of existing dynamic models, which generally require more input data.

Finally, the manual tentatively describes possible linkages between dynamic modelling results and integrated assessment modelling. This linkage is necessary for use in the near future support of the policy review of the 1999 CLRTAP Protocol to Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground-level Ozone (the ‘Gothenburg Protocol’) and the 2001 EU National Emission Ceiling Directive.
