The need to quantify dry deposition is widely recognized. However, despite considerable research, most commonly used methods have several disadvantages. Development of new methods suitable for use in complex vegetation canopies and compatible with particles in a wide range of sizes is a major research need. This paper reports some aspects of several recent field studies on particle dry deposition to various surfaces, with emphasis on their application to sulfur deposition. The different methods used have been applied to a number of atmospheric constituents. Subjects covered include deposition to leaves and surrogate surfaces, throughfall analysis, radionuclide concentration analysis, and others.
