-  This figure is taken from the Lucy Braun Association's 1997 report on the Appalachia Forest Action Project, which measured changing mortality rates for trees throughout the mixed mesophytic system. The caption for this figure reads: "The 1985-1987 pattern of annual sulfate wet deposition. The seven shaded categories represent percentile categories from minimum to maximum values; i.e., 5% of the area in the eastern United States had wet sulfate deposition exceeding 32kg/ha (After NAPAP 1990)."
