Dear colleagues in Division 7
I am pleased to inform you that the 10th International Conference on
Acid Deposition, ACID RAIN 2020, will be held in Niigata, Japan, from 19

As you can see on the conference webpage above, IUFRO is listed as one
of the co-organizers of the conference. Many of colleagues from RG
7.01.00 are involved in the preparation of the conference. The
conference is entitled “ACID RAIN 2020: The Future Environment and Role
of Multiple Air Pollutants”, which covers issues not only specific to
acid rain but also a wide range of scientific topics relating to various
air pollutants, including ozone, particulate matters, etc. Relationship
between air pollution and climate change is also within the scope.
Therefore, direct/indirect effects of various environmental factors on
forest ecosystems will be discussed in the conference.
We would appreciate it if you and your colleagues consider the
possibility of attending the conference.
See you in Niigata, Japan, in 2020!
