Short description: Major fluxes of S and N compounds in two central European mountain areas (The Bohemian forest and The Tatra Mountains) are estimated for the whole industrial period (1850-2000). Historical emission rates of S and N in the area of the Czech Republic and Slovakia were reconstructed and historical trends in S and N deposition in the mountain regions were estimated using relationships between emissions rates and measured deposition. Finally, S and N outputs from catchment-lake processes were estimated using historical and recent water chemistry records: the resulting input-output fluxes were used to estimate possible changes in soil storage of S and N during the period 1930-2000.
