Regional evaluations of acid deposition effects on forests: Eastern spruce-fir

Having reviewed the results of the Integrated Forest Study (IFS) project, we now try to place the results in a larger perspective by very briefly summarizing acid deposition effects and their potential role in forest health in the several forest types represented in the IFS project. This chapter gives brief overviews of the situation in eastern...

Aluminum in soil solutions from a subalpine spruce-fir forest at Whiteface Mountain, New York

Direct or indirect Al toxicity has been suggested as a principal factor in forest tree declines. We monitored ambient soil solutions in undisturbed and experimentally manipulated soils from a fir [Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.]-spruce forest on Whiteface Mountain, NY, in order to characterize soil solution Al concentrations over a range of acid...

Redistribution of soil nitrogen, carbon and organic matter by mechanical disturbance during whole-tree harvesting in northern hardwoods

To investigate whether mechanical mixing during harvesting could account for losses observed from forest floor, we measured surface disturbance on a 22 ha watershed that was whole-tree harvested. Surface soil on each 10 cm interval along 81, randomly placed transects was classified immediately after harvesting as mineral or organic, and as...

Trace-metal leaching from plumbing materials exposed to acidic ground water in three areas of the coastal plain of New Jersey

The U.S. Geological Survey analyzed trace metal concentrations in tap water from domestic wells in newly constructed homes in Berkeley Township, Ocean County and Galloway Township, Atlantic County, N. J. The potable water distribution systems in all of the homes sampled are constructed primarily of copper with lead-based solder points. Home water...

Probable high ground-water levels in Massachusetts

Water-level records from an observation-well network are analyzed for utility in estimating probable high ground-water levels in three different geohydrologic environments in Massachusetts. Analyses were made of 83 observation wells with between 8 and 37 years of records. Maximum annual water levels occur most frequently in March and April. The...
