In Christianity, the Deposition is the removal of Christ from the cross, at the Crucifixion.
An alluvial deposit is an accumulation of alluvium (sediment), sometimes containing valuable ore and gemstones, or simply consisting of gravel, sand, or clay, in the bed or former bed of a river.
In geology, a placer deposit is a deposit of earth, sand, or gravel, containing valuable minerals in particles, especially by the side of a river, or in the bed of a mountain stream.

 Deposition (chemistry) - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Deposition is a term used in chemistry to describe the settling of particles or sediment from a solution or suspension mixture, or the production of a solid on a pre-existing surface.
Deposition of particles is an aggradational process — one that builds a landform — as opposed to a degradational process that erodes or reduces the size of a landform.
For example, a river mouth delta is formed by deposition of sediment carried by the stream as the river current diminishes upon encountering the sea.

 Meteorology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Meteorology, climatology, atmospheric physics, atmospheric dynamics, and atmospheric chemistry are sub-disciplines of the atmospheric sciences.
Although the term meteorology is used today to describe a subdiscipline of the atmospheric sciences, Aristotle's work is more general.
Now the sun, moving as it does, sets up processes of change and becoming and decay, and by its agency the finest and sweetest water is every day carried up and is dissolved into vapour and rises to the upper region, where it is condensed again by the cold and so returns to the earth.

 Atmospheric Deposition of Mercury   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The distance that anthropogenically mobilized Hg is transported prior to deposition is determined largely by the speciation of Hg that is emitted.
Chemical speciation, climate, and meteorology influence the extent to which local and or global sources contribute to Hg deposition.
Findings from the Florida Atmospheric Mercury Study (FAMS) suggest that the annual deposition of Hg in Southern Florida is mediated by long range transport of Hg (mainly Hg(II) resulting from the oxidation of Hgo in the global atmosphere) coupled with strong convective thunderstorm activity during the wet season.

 Acid Rain, QB 95-03
Deposited atmospheric acidity, however, was small in comparison with native soil acidity (total and exchangeable) and the reserves of base cations in each soil.
The main objective was to quantify S deposited by wet and dry deposition at distances from a large emitter (135 t SO2-S day-1) and determine the effect on soil pH.
This was attributed to the slow breakdown and dissolution of the limestone pellets under the forest canopy and the reduced importance of the surface runoff pathways owing to pre-afforestation cultivation and drainage, and soil drying by the forest crop.

For deposition values, either the dry deposition flux, the wet deposition flux, or the total deposition flux may be estimated.
The total deposition flux is simply the sum of the dry and wet deposition fluxes at a particular receptor location.

Monitoring equipment such as that used for NADP and CASTNet Networks are often used to determine deposition loadings to parks, however it is difficult to determine whether this data, collected at just one or two locations, is a good spatial representation of deposition loadings across park elevations and ecosystems.
Results to date show that deposition varies by elevation and vegetation type in the parks; that the variability can be large (7-fold) between sites within a park, and that deposition is much higher (50% at Acadia) than total deposition determined by existing NADP and CASTNet monitoring stations in the park.
