To investigate the effects of acid atmospheric deposition on trees and soil at the forest stand level, intensive monitoring programmes and integrated simulation models have been developed. This paper describes the application of the NUCSAM, SOILVEG and FORGRO models to the Douglas fir stand on a podzolic soil at Speuld. The models were parametrized and calibrated for this site. Simulated soil water contents, soil solution chemistry, foliage biomass, nutrient status and stem growth were comparable with observations. SOILVEG and FORGRO were further tested by simulating an irrigation and fertigation experiment. Further, the models were used to simulate the response to the Dutch target deposition scenario.
