This report contains extended abstracts from an international meeting held in Budapest, Hungary. Its main subject is the question of proportionality and linearity between emissions and deposition/airborne concentration of air pollutants including sulfur, nitrogen, oxidants, and acidity. Session topics (which serve here as section headings) included analysis of measurements, ammonia and its implications for linearity, modeling with emphasis on chemistry, simplified approaches to the linearity issue, and results from long-range transport models. Linearity was found to be strongly dependent on the distance between emitters and receptors, the averaging time of pollutants, and the form of deposition.
