Abstract: Research in the oak-hickory forest of northcentral Pennsylvania is being conducted to detect anomalies in forest condition that may be due to atmospheric deposition, with the intent that such anomalies will be further studied to determine the role, if any, of atmospheric deposition. This paper presents the status of research along a 160-km gradient of sulfate/nitrate deposition across northern Pennsylvania begun in 1986 by a multidisciplinary group of researchers at Penn State University and Ohio State University.
