This book is the result of a conference held biannually at the Goodwin-Niering Center for Conservation Biology and Environmental Studies at Connecticut College. It uses an interdisciplinary approach to focus on important ecological impacts of acid deposition, the transboundary nature of the pollutants that cause acid rain, and domestic and international policies designed to reduce the emission of these pollutants.

Produktbeschreibung
This book is the result of a conference held biannually at the Goodwin-Niering Center for Conservation Biology and Environmental Studies at Connecticut College. It uses an interdisciplinary approach to focus on important ecological impacts of acid deposition, the transboundary nature of the pollutants that cause acid rain, and domestic and international policies designed to reduce the emission of these pollutants. The book combines research findings and the policy analyses of experts from different academic disciplines with the positions advanced by representatives of various nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Because the volume explores many aspects of the acid rain issue, it will be of interest to a diverse audience that includes researchers, students, concerned citizens, policy analysts, and members of NGOs and government agencies who could use the text as background for discussion pertaining to the science and policy of acid deposition. TOC:Acid in the Environment: An Overview.- Lessons Learned From the Acid Deposition Research Experience.- Part I: The Ecological Impacts of Acid Deposition.- Acid Rain Revisited.- Acid Deposition - Effects, Response to Decreases in Sulfur Emissions, and Prospects for Long-term Recovery.- Atmospheric Nitrogen Deposition: Implications for Nutrient Cycling, Acidification and Terrestrial Ecosystem Functioning.- Nitrogen Pollution from Acid Rain is a Major Driver of Eutrophication in Coastal Marine Ecosystems.- Part II: Acid Emissions Energy and Policy.- U.S. Energy Policy and the Transmission of Acid-producing Emissions Across State Boundaries.- Acid Rain Politics in North America: Conflict to Cooperation to Collusion.- Addressing the Transboundary Acid Rain Issue in Western Europe: Lessons and Comparison with the U.S. Experience.- Acid Rain in a Wider Europe: The Post Communist Transition and the Future European Acid Rain Policies.- Part III: SO2 and the Market.- Market-Based Approaches to Environmental Policy: A "Refresher" Course.- Economic Incentives Versus Command and Control: What's the Best Approach for Solving Environmental Problems?- Benefits and Costs from Sulfur Dioxide Trading: A Distributional Analysis.- From SO2 to Greenhouse Gases: Trends and Events Shaping Future Emissions Trading Programs in the United States.- Part IV. Lessons Learned and Future Prospects.- Atmospheric Deposition and Conservation: What is the Role for Conservation Organizations?
