Abstract

The results of IIASA (Austria) based on forest monitoring programmes indicate that nearly 80% of coniferous and 40% of deciduous forests in Europe suffer from air and soil pollution effects. Satellite observations show that in Central Europe the currents of polluted air are spread by the wind to a distance of 700 to 800 km. An increase in precipitation acidity has been recorded in western Lithuania. For several months the pH indicator of precipitation was 3.8 to 4.0. In the eastern direction, the pH indicator becomes more alkaline. This proves that pollutants moved to Lithuania from Western Europe, including neighbouring Poland. - (L'A.)
