In a more narrow sense, the term "acid deposition" can today be defined as the input of all components into an ecosystem which determine the net proton flux into the system. Acid rain in this context is only a part of acid deposition.

These gaps suggest some recommendations for the execution of future surveys: - - Quantify the uncertainties of forest damage surveys and improve the harmonization of assessment methods in different countries.
