This sequence of overseas meetings at the acid rain challenge has made a crucial contribution to the method of summarising the kingdom of present realizing and making this knowledge on hand. within the sixth convention, nearly six hundred papers have been awarded, together with talks and posters. approximately three hundred peer-reviewed papers from the presentation seem during this quantity, and may supply readers with a complete evaluation of the historical past and clinical elements of the acid rain challenge. The papers look in 3 volumes: the 1st containing the plenary and keynote papers and the opposite the rest clinical papers. (Volume 1: ISBN 0-7923-7132-1; quantity 2: ISBN 0-7923-7133-X; quantity three: ISBN 0-7923-7134-8).
The convention was once prepared less than the joint auspices of The technology Council of Japan, the japanese Society of Limnology (representative educational society), Japan organization of Aerosol technological know-how and know-how, The Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry, Japan Society for Atmospheric setting, Chemical Society of Japan, The Ecological Society of Japan, the japanese Society of Environmental schooling, Society of Environmental technology, Japan, the japanese Forestry Society, eastern Society of Snow and Ice, eastern Society of Soil technology and Plant foodstuff, and Japan Society on Water atmosphere, with the cooperation of Ibaraki Prefecture and Japan surroundings Agency.

We do not know yet how these interact. What the likely outcomes of such interactions will be, and how they will affect our society, are other key questions. Another aspect pointed out was the matter of integration. We have accumulated a considerable amount of knowledge. These bits and pieces of knowledge and information need to be put together to obtain a holistic view of the problems. However, the discussions made clear that there is a substantial lack of knowledge regarding the biological and ecological processes of ecosystems.

These are the summaries of the sessions. 1. SESSION 1: EMISSIONSANDTHEIRCON1ROL Emission trends and projections for S02 and NOx were fully discussed. A recent decrease in S02 emission in China was reported in ''Trends in Emissions of Acidifying Species in East Asia, 1985-1997", although there have been different estimates, including one that emission would increase until around 2010. The current emission inventories for NH3, NMVOC (non-methane volatile organic compounds), CO and Particulate Matter were discussed.

Since then, the global-scale anthropogenic acidification of the biosphere has been progressing. The rate of dischatge is still accelerating. Approximately 70-95 Tg of sulphur and well over 30 Tg of nitrogen are currently emitted globally each year from fossil fuel combustion and more recently also from the application of nitrogen fertilizers. Natural ecosystems as well as human society have suffered much from the pollution, which has resulted in considerable physical damage and economic losses in health, social, and cultural aspects.
