Abstract

A model, MAKEDEP, was developed for reconstructing historic atmospheric deposition and nutrient uptake for forests using present day values. Deposition is reconstructed by separation of wet deposition and throughfall into five different categories. Dry deposition is assumed to depend linearly on needle biomass. Non-marine deposition is scaled using general European emission and deposition trends for sulphur, nitrate and ammonia. Historic nutrient uptake is reconstructed using current biomass and nutrient content, a logistic forest growth curve and information on historic land use.
