Coal burning power plants in the American Southwest produce a variety of airborne pollutants and combustion products, which fall to the ground via precipitation processes. These pollutants often land on the surface of an area known as the Great Basin and the Colorado Basin. Sulfur and nitrogen deposition in excess of the natural historic quantities may result in ecological change. The purpose of this study was to explore this issue and to determine if there may be any ecological changes and if there is indeed any need for concern.
