Scientists are becoming increasingly aware that air pollution is creating significant changes in the quality of freshwaters. An important example is the established connection between the deposition of air pollutants and acidification of freshwater lakes in Nordic countries and parts of North America.

Scientists have responded to the need for greater understanding of the problem by developing mathematical models which describe the relationship between air pollution and acidification of lakes and streams. This paper reviews these mathematical approaches and will serve as a basis for developing IIASA's own strategy for linking air pollutant emissions with damage to aquatic ecosystems.
