What natural environment do we want?
SLU researchers have played an important role in Sweden’s 150 year long history of environmental acidification, for instance the acidification process was first shown by soil researcher Svante Odén in the 1960s. Reduced sulphur emissions and thereby less acid deposition, makes land and water areas in Sweden now recovering from the acidification that started already during the 19th century. But towards...
Browner water with less acidification
As sulphur deposition decreases, our lakes and watercourses are becoming ever browner, an effect caused by humus from surrounding land.
