Outreach on acid rain, EPA first devel-oped this guide in This revised guide is designed to help students better understand the science, cause and effect, and regulatory and citizen action that are part of understanding and addressing acid rain.

This book is intended for teachers of students in 6th-8th grade. It is written at. 'Acid rain' is a broad term used to describe several ways that acids fall out of the atmosphere. A more precise term is acid deposition, which has two parts: wet and dry. Wet deposition refers to acidic rain, fog, and snow.

As this acidic water flows over and through the ground, it affects a variety of plants and animals. The strength of the effects depends on many factors, including 3/5(1). Explains the effects of acid rain on Acid rain control book planet, such as the health risks to humans, plants, and animals, and suggests ways to help alleviate the problem.

Initially, we considered acid rain to be the acidification of rain and snow from pollutant sources of SO 2, which acidified lakes and streams and killed fish and other aquatic is now known that this serious environmental problem is much more complicated (Figure ) and widespread, affecting ecosystems around the rain has become a common and.

CHAPTER ACID RAIN Acid rain was discovered in the 19th century by Robert Angus Smith, a pharmacist from Manchester (England), who measured high levels of acidity in rain falling over industrial regions of England and contrasted them to the much lower levels he observed in less polluted areas near the coast.

Select item acid rain and the effects on plant growth (55) Books. Your browsing activity is empty. Activity. Abstract. Acid Rain is a primer on the science and politics of acid rain. Several introductory chapters describe in simple terms the relevant principles of water chemistry, soil chemistry, and plant physiology and discuss the demonstrated or postulated effects of acid rain on fresh waters and forests as well as on statuary and other exposed objects.

The term ‘acid rain’ refers to atmospheric deposition of acidic constituents that impact the earth as rain, snow, particulates, gases, and vapor. Acid rain was first recognized by Ducros () and subsequently described by the English chemist Robert Angus Smith (Smith, ) whose pioneering studies linked the sources to industrial.

Discussed are acid rain control options available to the electric utility industry. They include coal switching, flue gas desulfurization, and such emerging lower cost technologies as Limestone Injection Multistage Burners (LIMB) and Advanced Silicate (ADVACATE), both developed by EPA, selective use of gas to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) in coal-fired.

The two chapters on the science of acid rain and control strategies provide an admirable summary of a complex problem. The last three chapters, which occupy half of the book, describe the economic dimension and the political options.features of the acid rain phenomenon were first discovered by an English chemist, Robert Angus Smith, in the middle of the nineteenth century!
