The emphasis of the model is on the transboundary aspect of air pollution in Europe with the aim to find cost effective environment policies for Europe. The model will be embedded in the IIASA Regional Acidification Information and Simulation (RAINS) model. The spatial coverage of RAINS is all of Europe, and the time horizon begins in 1960 to permit checking of historical calculations, and extends to 2030 to allow examination of long-term consequences of control strategies. In this work we concentrate on soil acidification, which is an important link between air pollution and damage to the terrestrial and aquatic environment. The ability of soil to buffer acid deposition is a key factor in regulating the long-term surface and groundwater acidification. Soil acidification has also been related to forest die-back via its effect in the tree root zone. This work is concentrating on the finding of cost effective pollution control satisfying environment constraints, such as pH-value in forest soils.
