The deposition of protons results in increased cation leaching from the leaves and needles with subsequent acidification of the rhizosphere.

Annual SO~- fluxes in throughfall plus stemflow beneath adjacent treated and untreated plots (three each) were not significantly different. Assuming atmospheric deposition of SO~- to be comparable among plots, the results suggest little or no internal plant leaching of SO~ - in the untreated plots. The second study employed a mass balance approach using measurements of foliar S content and S fluxes in litterfall, throughfall, and stemflow to estimate foliar leaching of internal S (Meiwes and Khanna, 1981).
