The aim of this project is to measure the airborne deposition of acidifying and eutrophicating compounds (gaseous and particulate reduced and oxidised nitrogen and sulphur compounds) in air and precipitation over Sweden at high altitude. The results from this programme is used to calculate and model basic processes governing sources, atmospheric transport and sinks of atmospheric trace constituents. The observations are made at three stations. The measurements include particulate reduced and oxidised nitrogen and sulphur compounds in gaseous and particulate form in air and precipitation.

Concentrations of acidifying and eutrophicating compounds in the air are measured with a filterpack method. All analyses are performed at the accredited laboratory at IVL according to EMEPs recommendation. http://www.naturvardsverket.se/upload/02_tillstandet_i_miljon/Miljoovervakning/programomraden/luft/Kval-dek%20Luft_%20nederbordskemi_inom_EMEP.pdf;
