En 1905 apparaîssait une nouvelle body qui allait révolutionner l. a. façon de décrire los angeles matière et ses interactions : los angeles body quantique. Avec elle s’ouvraient les portes d’un monde qui n’obéit pas aux lois de l. a. body classique : l’infiniment petit, avec ses atomes et ses particules. Elle obligea ses pères fondateurs, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg et Schrödinger notamment, à rediscuter le déterminisme et les critères de réalité de l. a. body classique.

ROBARGE AND DALE W. JOHNSON (Matzner, 1989). Reduction of N uptake translates into enhanced leaching and potential transport of NO, and toxic cations to the stream-lake environment. Additional disruptions in nitrogen-unstable ecosystems, such as prolonged periods of drought or the loss of overhead canopy due to the forest decline, will only aggravate the loss of NO; from the ecosystem (Gundersen and Rasmussen, 1990). , 1989; Hauhs, 1989) due to the uncoupling of the deacidification processes of the bulk soil from the acidification processes of nitrification (Ulrich, 1986).

Rearrangement of Eq. ( 5 ) to illustrates how the activity of the A13+ ion in solution is a function of the nature of the exchange surface (&), the BS [CaX] or acid saturation [AlX] of the exchange surface, and ionic strength of the soil solution (Ca2+). The nonlinear dependence on the activity of A13+ in solution is particularly important in regard to the nature of the base cation. Soil solution A13+ concentration increases to the 3/2 power of soil solution Ca2+ or Mg2+ concentration, and to the third power for soil solution K + , Na+, or H+ (Reuss, 1983).

Therefore, relatively few studies are available that can be used to determine whether an increase in H+ loading increases the rate of silicate weathering. 6 kmol ha-' yr-' (Folster, 1985). 29 kmol ha-' yr-', respectively (Matzner, 1989). These rates are similar to those estimated for the Hubbard Brook Watershed for the past 24 years, suggesting that there has been no trend in weathering rates at this forested catchment that also receives substantial inputs of acidic deposition (Frogner, 1990). Lack of an increase in weathering rates is also the tentative conclusion of the RAIN project in Norway after 4 years of manipulation of four catchments (Frogner, 1990).
