The rate of silicate weathering can have a significant influence on the chemical state of a forest ecosystem (Matzner, 1989), and will also affect the long-term resistance of an ecosystem to acidic inputs. An increase in the rate of weathering in response to an increase in the H+ concentration of the soil solution would act to buffer against changes in soil acidity, but the potential for loss of base cations would also increase. Such losses from the primary source of nutrient cations within an ecosystem would have a direct influence on the system's ability to recover after a cessation or reduction in acidic inputs.

1989; MacDonald and Hart, 1990). , 1989). , 1976; Sposito, 1989). Increasing the concentration of dissolved organic matter in the soil solution will enhance SO:- mobility (Tabatabai, 1987; Evans and Anderson, 1990; Evans and Zelazny, 1990). , 1987). Precipitation from solution will consume A13', and will decrease exchangeable A13+ in mineral soil horizons (Evans and Zelazny, 1987). , 1987). , 1987; Matzner, 1989). Once the supply of readily available Al(OH), is exhausted, H+ consumption by the soil continues by reaction with the alumino hydroxy sulfate phase, 2AIOHS04 + 2H+ + 2A13++ 2SO:- + 2H20 (17) with the release of the previously sorbed SO:- (Matzner, 1989).

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).
