Acid Rain ProgramAuthor: R. Joskow, P. and Schmalensee. Acid rain, which also takes the form of snow, fog or dry particles, stems from sulfur dioxide pollution that chemically combines with moisture and oxygen in the atmosphere. In the East, most sulfur dioxide pollution comes from coal-burning electric generating : Iver Peterson.

Thus, when acid rain emerged as a major environmental problem, it was inevitable that any solution would involve considerable governmental and political activity. Given the magnitude of the problem it also became clear that it could be solved only at considerable cost, and economic and political factors are now inexorably linked in any consideration of acid rain reduction.

Acid rain, also called acid precipitation or acid deposition, precipitation possessing a pH of about or below primarily produced from the emission of sulfur dioxide (SO 2) and nitrogen oxides (NO x; the combination of NO and NO 2) from human activities, mostly the combustion of.

Decades of acid deposition in these sensitive regions have depleted the acid-neutralizing capacity of soils. As a result, these soils are even more susceptible to continued acid deposition, even at reduced levels. Further reductions in NO x and SO 2 emissions will be necessary to protect such acid-sensitive ecosystems.

Acid rain is made up of water droplets that are unusually acidic because of atmospheric pollution, most notably the excessive amounts of sulfur and nitrogen released by cars and industrial processes.

Acid rain is also called acid deposition because this term includes other forms of acidic precipitation (such as snow).Author: Amanda Briney. Dead or dying trees are a common sight in areas effected by acid rain like these woods in the Jezera Mountains in the Czech Republic.
