National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP):: US federal-state-NGO cooperative effort operating a national precipitation monitoring network to observe geographic and temporal trends in acidity, mercury, and other attributes. Includes data, maps, and meeting announcements.

PPRP Atmospheric Deposition Measurement and Analysis:: Information about and from regional acid deposition monitoring programs in the Chesapeake Bay watershed (USA).

Acid deposition Created by SM Enzler MSc:: Acid deposition is a general name for a number of phenomena, namely acid rain, acid fog and acid mist. This means it can imply both wet and dry (gaseous) precipitation. Acid deposition is a rather well known environmental problem, for example acid fog killed several thousand people in London in 1952. Acid deposition is concerned with long-range rather than local effects. Pollutants are mixed in the atmosphere and therefore usually cannot be attri

What is Acid Rain and What Causes It?:: A discussion of the causes and effects of acid rain, and possible policy solutions.

The Acid Rain Report:: Student-created site discusses the causes, effects, geographic distribution, and possible solutions for acid rain.

US EPA - Acid Rain:: Information about causes and effects, how acid rain is measured, and what is being done to solve the problem. Includes activities for students.

USGS: What Is Acid Rain?:: Commonly used to mean the deposition of acidic components in rain, snow, fog, dew, or dry particles.

Wikipedia : Acid Rain:: Acid rain is a rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, i.e. elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). It can have harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals, and infrastructure through the process of wet deposition. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides which react with the water molecules in the atmosphere to produce acids. Governments have made efforts since the 1970s to reduce the rel

Acid Rain: Causes, Effects and Solutions:: Explanation of the causes, the consequences, and the solutions of acid rain. Information about acid rain's chemical formations and reactions.

US EPA Acid Rain Program:: About EPA efforts reduce electric utilities' emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, the pollutants responsible for acid deposition. The program includes a system of tradable SO2 emissions allowances.
