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
