What do acid rains cause?
What are its harmful effects? It has been shown that acid rain has detrimental effects on trees, freshwaters and soils, destroys insects and aquatic life-forms, causes paint to peel, corrosion of steel structures such as bridges, and weathering of stone buildings and sculptures, as well as impacts on human health.
What does acid rain do to lakes?
It is in aquatic habitats that the effects of acid rain are most obvious. Acid rain runs off the land and ends up in streams, lakes and marshes – the rain also falls directly on these areas. As the acidity of a lake increases, the water becomes clearer and the numbers of fish and other water animals decline.
How does acid rain control the quality of water?
Precipitation becomes acidic when it mix with atmospheric gases (trace gases) such as sulphor and nitrogen ( making sulphuric acid and nitros oxide). This also leads to increased adsorption of aluminium from soil. The delivery of this water to streams can effect water quality and harm the living the aquatic organisms.
