At the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, New Hampshire, hydrogen ion sources (2541 eq H+ ha-1 yr-1) approximately balanced hydrogen ion sinks (2428 eq H+ ha-1 yr-1). Atmospheric hydrogen ion inputs contributed 52% of the total H+ sources for the ecosystem. Projections of changes in precipitation H+ loading on water quality were made. Changes in H2SO4 precipitation inputs would have more influence on water quality than HNO3 inputs. -from Authors
