Tropical Atmospheric Acidity: What Now and Where to?

Our current understanding of acidification in tropical countries is briefly reviewed, and set within the context given by the growing recognition that the tropics are of great importance for the atmosphere globally as a major source of reactive atmospheric chemicals. Key issues are identified, and specific scientific goals for study of tropical atmospheric acidity are outlined, with special reference to relevant parts of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) program.
