The damages relate, inter alia, to ecosystems, forests, lake acidification, buildings, health effects and loss of agricultural production. Although damage cost estimates have been made for a number of countries, no solid empirical foundation for these estimates is available. This is usually the case, because the damage is often related to public goods for which no market price exists. In Section 6 we discuss the critical loads approach that avoids the complications of damage costs estimation. For the time being we have assumed that the damage costs are a linear function of acid deposition.

Only the initial and repeat samples, which can more reasonably be assumed to be Bernouilli with constant probability are combined in this second evaluation of the proposed MCL on stringency. d. over both time and space. Of course, the potential increased sensitivity that accrues from a larger (homogeneous) sample size, if a reality, is lost. The long-range stringency may be underestimated although the collected field data evidence does not suggest this. A review of the basic components in decision rule formulation is available in the Appendix.
