Abstract : One hundred twenty-four privately funded acid rain research projects, each with funding over $5000, were documented. Individuals from over 13 industry/special interest groups were contacted (including gas, electric, petroleum, paper, coal, automobile, etc.). Information was solicited on research in the following areas: emissions, transport, chemistry, removal/deposition, collection/analysis, environmental effects, mitigation, legal, and economics. For each inventoried project, the following information was obtained: project title, funding organization, project officer, research organization and principal investigator, period of performance, funding, research objectives, project description, and expected output. Each of the inventoried studies was categorized by major research objectives into one of the following four research categories: (1) atmospheric processes; (2) environmental effects; (3) emissions and monitoring; and (4) other projects. A detailed cross-reference subject index is provided as an appendix.
