Title: Patterns of streamwater acidity in Lye Brook Wilderness, Vermont, USA

Author: Campbell, John L.; Eagar, Christopher; McDowell, William H.;

Date: 2002

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Under the United States Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977, a class I designation safeguards wilderness areas from the negative effects of new sources of air pollution. We monitored streamwater chemistry in the class I Lye Brook Wilderness in southwestern Vermont from May 1994 through August 1995. Stream samples were collected biweekly at nine sampling locations throughout the wilderness and were analyzed for major cations and anions, dissolved organic carbon, pH, and acid-neutralizing capacity.

Keywords: acidic deposition, cation exchange capacity, stream chemistry, watershed, wetland, wilderness
