This report contains a very helpful basic background on acid rain as well as a questionnaire. It involves an annual report on the Federal-Provincial Agreements, sulphur dioxide emissions in the seven most eastern provinces, trends in acid deposition in the Atlantic provinces from 1980-1994, as well as acid precipitation in Kejimkujik, Nova Scotia. It also includes data tables, graphs ...
  • Effects Of Acid Deposition
    805 words
    Acid Rain What Is Acid Rain Acid Rain is a type of air pollution, formed when oxides of sulfur and nitrogen combine with atmosphere moisture to yield sulfuric and nitric acids, which may then be carried long distances from a source before they are deposited by rain. This pollution may also be snow, fog, or a dry form of precipitation. Acid rain is currently a subject of great controversy because of widespread environmental damage for which it has been blamed, including eroding structures, injuri...

  • Deposits Of Concentrated Uranium Ore
    569 words
    Uranium the 92nd element and a member of Group 3 b in the periodic table. Its atomic weight is 238.029. Its name and chemical symbol, U, are derived from Uranus, because that planet was discovered a few years before the discovery of the element. A compound of uranium (uranium oxide) was discovered in a uranium ore, pitchblende, by German chemist M.H. Klaproth in 1789. The German thought that he had found a new element. This was not achieved until 1841, when the French chemist E.M. Peli got reduc...
  • Acid Deposition Standard
    1,342 words
    Scientific Acid Rains Acid Rains Scientific evidence has shown that atmospheric deposition of sulfur and nitrogen compounds can harm ecosystems. Title IV of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (C or the Act) addresses the problem of such effects by mandating reductions in emissions of sulfur and nitrogen oxides, the major precursors of acidic deposition. Coupled with Titles I and II of the Act, which address new and existing stationary and mobile sources of sulfur and nitrogen oxides, implement...
