Soil and soil solution responses simulated with a site-scale soil acidification model (NUCSAM) were compared with results of a regional one (RESAM). RESAM is a multi-layer model with a temporal resolution of one year. NUCSAM also takes account of seasonal variability, since it simulates solute transport and biogeochemical processes on a daily basis. Uncertainty caused by neglecting seasonal variability in long-term predictions was investigated by comparing long-term RESAM and NUCSAM simulations. Although the seasonal and interannual variations in soil solution parameters were large, the trends in soil solution parameters corresponded quite well. Generally, the uncertainty due to time resolution in long-term predictions was relatively small.
