E&S Environmental Chemistry wrote and designed this pamphlet for the National Park Service to help interested stakeholders understand the effects of air pollution on the natural and scenic resources of Shenandoah National Park. These effects are known to harm some of the plants, soils, streams, fish, insects, and scenic vistas that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors to the park each year. The pamphlet focused on park resources that are sensitive to air pollution damage and how these resources interact with air pollution and with each other. This is a story of scientific exploration and ecosystem complexity, but it also concerns environmental awareness, ecosystem protection, and hope for a better future for our natural world. The scientific principles that govern these interactions are technical and complex, but the general explanation is understandable to everyone. Project completion date was August 2010.
