The Regional Acidification Information and Simulation (RAINS) model that has been developed at IIASA can be used to assess the environmental effects of a given pattern of emissions in Europe or, given an environmental target, develop cost-effective international emission reduction strategies. In this paper, the RAINS model has been used to assess the effect of emissions from the United Kingdom at four receptor points in the United Kingdom, southwestern Norway, southern Sweden and the German Democratic Republic. The United Kingdom is, of course, the dominant contributor to sulfur deposition in the UK and is the largest national contributor (outside of the substantial contribution of background sulfur) to deposition in southwestern Norway. It is not important for deposition in southern Sweden or the German Democratic Republic.
