Abstract

The model of acidification of groundwater in catchments (MAGIC) was used to simulate a matrix of target load (TL) values for use in protection and restoration of forest resources in the Adirondack Mountains of New York against soil acidification by acidic deposition. Modeling results were extrapolated to the population of 1,320 watersheds in the Adirondack Ecoregion that contain lakes expected to be >1 ha and >1 m deep and that have acid neutralizing capacity
