    Description

    This site, selected to be representative of high-mountain wilderness ecosystems, is being used to study the effects of air pollution and atmospheric deposition In alpine and subalpine, terrestrial and aquatic biotic communities. The research program includes (a) short-term experiments designed to quantify the response of system components hypothesized to be most sensitive to changes In ozone, 8, and N air pollution and deposition; (b) development of operationally oriented models capable of predicting system, species, and biogeochemical responses; and (c) long-term biogeochemically-oriented monitoring to help establish the validity of (a) and (b) as management decision tools.
