Air quality criteria for oxides of nitrogen (final, 1993)

Author: U.S. EPA (1993) (EPA/600/8-91/049aF-cF). Research Triangle Park, NC: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Environmental Criteria and Assessment Office. [EPA Report] HERO ID: 17649

[Less] This criteria document focuses on a review and assessment of the effects on human health and welfare . . . [More] This criteria document focuses on a review and assessment of the effects on human health and welfare of the nitrogen oxides, nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and the related compounds, nitrites, nitrates, nitrogenous acids, and nitrosamines. Although the emphasis is on presentation of health and welfare effects data, other scientific data are presented in order to provide a better understanding of these pollutants in the environment. To this end, separate chapters are included which discuss the nitrogen cycle, sources and emissions, atmospheric chemical processes which transform emissions of nitrogen oxides into related airborne compounds, transport and removal processes, measurement methods, and atmospheric concentrations of nitrogenous pollutants.

Acidic deposition and aquatic ecosystems: Regional case studies

(1991) In Charles, DF; Christie, S (Eds.), Acidic Deposition and Aquatic Ecosystems: Regional Case Studies. New York, NY: Springer-Verlag. HERO ID: 91891

[Less] Acidic deposition and its effect on aquatic ecosystems have become major scientific and public policy . . . [More] Acidic deposition and its effect on aquatic ecosystems have become major scientific and public policy issues in the United States since the early 1970s, and many diverse studies have been completed. This book is the first comprehensive, integrated synthesis of available information on current and potential effects of acidic precipitation on lakes and streams in geographic regions with a high number of low-alkalinity surface water from the Adirondacks and the Southern Blue Ridge to the Upper Midwest to the Rocky Mountains, the Sierra Nevada, and the Cascades. Written by leading authors, the book examines the current status of water chemistry and characterizes the processes controlling water chemistry on a regional basis by using and comparing high-quality data sets. Methods for the assessment of long-term changes in water chemistry and their effects in fish and other biota are also presented. The book amply illustrates the substantial diversity among geographical regions with respect to the nature of surface waters and the complexity of their response to acidic deposition. This volume will be of great interest to researchers in limnology, aquatic ecology, environmental chemistry, hydrology, and atmospheric sciences. It will also serve as an important reference for environmental managers and policy makers.
