Abstract: Tropospheric ozone (O3) is considered to be the air pollutant relating to the decline of Fagus crenata forest in Japan. In the present study, we assessed a risk of O3 impact on the growth of F. crenata in Japan, giving consideration to the effects associated with atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition based on the experimental study, national monitoring data for oxidant concentration and atmospheric N deposition, and a national vegetation survey. The average and maximum O3-induced relative growth reduction (RGred) of F. crenata across Japan were estimated to be 3.2 and 9.7%, respectively. Current levels of atmospheric N deposition were found to significantly affect the sensitivity of F. crenata to O3. When the N deposition was assumed as zero, the estimated average and maximum RGred were 2.3% and 5.7%, respectively. The inclusion of atmospheric N deposition data thus increased the estimated values for average and maximum RGred (by 38% and 71%, respectively). Our results demonstrate that a change in the sensitivity to O3 associated with atmospheric N deposition is an important consideration in the risk assessment of O3 impact on the growth of F. crenata in Japan.
