Utilising all available datasets and a variety of methods, we evaluated lake sensitivity to acidification in northeast BC and developed a new empirical approach. While empirical methods for critical load assessment have been derived previously, those for acidification are relevant primarily to soil (for example Nilsson and Grennfelt, 1988; Sverdrup et al., 1990), rather than freshwater acidification. (Krzyzanowski, 2010) Methodologies used for assigning acidification sensitivity classes based on single lake chemistry parameters are listed.
