Abstract: To perform fully integrated assessments of the acid deposition problem it is necessary to combine models of all major aspects of the problem, including emissions, atmospheric transport, deposition processes, environmental effects and valuation of damages. The uncertainties in all these aspects should be explicitly represented so that their effects may be combined and compared. A modeling framework which addresses this need is currently being developed by a multidisciplinary group at Carnegie-Mellon University (C-MU). This paper reports progress on the development of the assessment model. (Author abstract. )
