The field-ecological IAP-method (Index of Atmospheric Purity), developed in 1970 by LeBlanc/DeSloover, has been applied in innumerable investigations. Until now the relation of this numeric lichen-index of air pollution has been based on the air pollutant SO2 only. The complex mixture of air pollutants in our atmosphere today calls for a calibration with different main parameters of air pollution. The present investigation shows on two independent measuring networks in Switzerland that it is possible to determine total impact of air pollution with a newly evaluated and substantially changed IAP-method (Calibrated Lichen Index of Air Quality). With the calibrated method a zonation map of air pollution has been created for the region of Biel. In addition, the total impact of air pollution has been determined for 18 stations on the Swiss Plateau.
