DescriptionPresents a method of selecting suitable forested areas for meaningful assessments of air pollution effects. The approach is based on the premise that environmental influences can significantly affect the forest-air pollution relationship, and that it is, therefore, desirable to equalize such influences at different sites. From existing data on environmental factors and air pollution monitoring data, a method of placing transparent overlays on maps was developed to identify forested areas that have common environmental characteristics but significantly different potential for air pollution.
