Abstract

The Monongahela National Forest (MNF) lies downwind from many sources of acid deposition (AD) pollution. Therefore, managers are concerned about the possible deleterious effects of AD on the forest ecosystem. To address the needs of MNF managers, we used Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) sites to evaluate forest growth patterns on the MNF to determine the relationship between growth and key indicators of soil acidity.
