Abstract

Although increased nitrogen deposition is likely to have most serious consequences for soils and vegetation in the United Kingdom, surface waters are also affected, especially in areas of very high N deposition and where uptake by vegetation is reduced. In these areas high nitrate levels contribute significantly to lake acidity and may independently cause changes to the structure of aquatic communities.
