National Research Council Staff; Environmental Studies Board's Acid Deposition : Atmospheric Processes in Eastern North PDF

By National Research Council Staff; Environmental Studies Board

How destructive is acid rain? present critiques fluctuate largely, partly simply because for each proposed hyperlink among acid rain and opposed environmental results another clarification according to different phenomena might be or has been proposed, and in lots of instances can't be without difficulty brushed aside. the explicit components addressed during this quantity contain the emissions of sulfur and nitrogen oxides, precipitation chemistry, atmospheric sulfates and visibility, floor water chemistry, sediment chemistry and abundance of diatom taxa, fish populations, and wooded area productiveness. The ebook then attracts conclusions concerning the acid deposition-phenomenon courting, selecting phenomena that are at once acid deposition-caused and suggesting others it appears because of human actions unrelated to acid deposition.

Thus heavy rainfall exceeding surface evaporation—even with low acid content—can mobilize ions over time. This mobilization from the soil may be enhanced when acid-forming materials also are deposited from the atmosphere and washed away.

INTRODUCTION 15 because of concern about urban air pollution in the 1960s, there has been a tendency since then to build large new facilities away from urban centers and to use tall stacks to eject emissions at higher altitudes, hence promoting dispersal and dilution of the pollutants.
