Our research group studies the impact of various pollutants on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. These pollutants include acid rain, nitrogen, ozone and heavy metals. Information from our studies is used in steady-state and dynamic models to predict 'acceptable levels' of pollutants that will not cause adverse biological effects according to present knowledge. Output from these model runs may be used as a guide for policy makers to establish pollutant emission targets.

Check out the research projects for further details.
