    USGS Atmospheric Deposition Program
    The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is the lead federal agency for the monitoring of wet atmospheric deposition (chemical constituents deposited from the atmosphere via rain, sleet, and snow) in the United States. The USGS atmospheric deposition program provides: 1) participation and leadership in the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) and 2) scientific research and assessment to evaluate trends and the effects of atmospheric deposition on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Atmospheric Deposition Program, U.S. Geological Survey Fact Sheet, 2000, 112-00: 27:36 National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP)
    The NADP monitors wet atmospheric deposition at approximately 300 locations throughout the United States. The USGS supports 76 of the roughly 250 NADP National Trends Network sites which measure acidity, nutrients and other major ions in precipitation. The USGS also supports 6 of the approximately 100 sites in the NADP

View the episode by clicking HERE Introduction Why are the trees dying? How come there are no fish in the lake? Why does the paint on my Dad's car look so bad? Where does that terrible rotten egg smell come from in our school yard every Spring? The answer to these questions is simple; acid rain is responsible for many of the serious environmental problems facing us today. While the answer may be simple, solving the acid rain problem is not. The Task A local citizens' group has hired you, and a group of other researchers, to investigate acid rain. You will take on the role of either a Chemist, Ecologist, Health Scientist, or Economist and examine the issue from that perspective. Working within this team, you will create a web site detailing the problems caused by acid rain and recommending ways that these problems can be alleviated. Within your group, decide who is going to assume the following roles. Use the questions appearing under each role to assist you in your research. While you are responsible for completing your section of the report, you will also be responsible for drawing up a series of recommendations, along with the other members of your team, on how to combat this serious issue.

What is the Freshwater Umbrella?
The Freshwater Umbrella research programme into the recovery of aquatic ecosystems from the effects of acidification has been funded by DEFRA (previously the DOE and DETR ) and the devolved agencies since 1990. The Freshwater Umbrella undertakes 3-year applied science programmes to develop the scientific background to aid DEFRA make policy decisions concerned with air pollution effects on freshwater systems in the UK. The main focus of the current Freshwater Umbrella research programme is the role of nitrogen and its effects on freshwater ecosystems both as a eutrophier and through the leaching of nitrate from catchment soils. Further information about the various research programmes undertaken by the Freshwater Umbrella can be found in the Research section of this website.

Invitation Exploration Explanation ... Conclusion Introduction: Acid rain affects humans in many ways. An indirect effect is damage to buildings and monuments. Imagine going to the cemetary in fifty years and being unable to read the grave markers of people that were buried in 1999. There is a good possibility that this could happen!
  • You will observe the effects of acid rain on various building materials.
  • small glass containers or baby food jars labels forceps or tweezers pHydrion paper plastic wrap distilled water vinegar copper (old pennies or copper metal) iron (nails or steel wool) marble chips granite chips plastic (pvc)
Top Invitation: Take an excursion using the internet or through your neighborhood to examine buildings and monuments. Look for signs of weathering and/or damage such as crumbling stone, peeling paint, unclear engravings or other signs. In class make a list of all the signs of weathering that you witnessed, and the types of building materials that were weathered.

Acid Rain
Is rain more acid than normal. Natural rain and snow is slightly acidic ( pH 5.6) because of the carbon dioxide (CO ) dissolved in it. But over recent decades, rain in North America and Europe downwind of industrial areas has had a pH close to 4.5 and sometimes as low as 2.1 (equivalent to lemon juice).
Sulfur dioxide
The evidence is very strong that most of this acidity is caused by sulfur dioxide (SO ) released from the smokestacks of coal-burning power plants and other industrial sources. The sulfur dioxide is converted into sulfuric acid (H SO ). This may be carried to the ground in rain or snow, but often particles containing sulfuric acid settle out of dry air. So the problem of acid rain is really one of acid deposition in dry weather as well as wet.
Nitrogen oxides
Nitrogen oxides ("NO x "), which are converted into nitric acid, also contribute to acid deposition. Automobile exhaust accounts for 50% or more of the nitrogen oxides in polluted air. View
Types of damage
Acid rain has been held responsible for damaging buildings and statues made of limestone (true - view an example ), damaging aquatic life in lakes (true), causing a decline in the vigor of U.S. and European forests (may be partially responsible), and harming human health (doubtful).

Ban On Pollution Credit Swaps Voided. Ruling deals a blow to state's efforts to reduce acid rain in Adirondacks

Ban On Pollution Credit Swaps Voided
Ruling deals a blow to state's efforts to reduce acid rain in Adirondacks by Dina Cappiello, April 10, 2002
A state law that penalized New York power plants for trading pollution credits to 14 other states was voided by a federal judge on Tuesday, removing a key part of the state's strategy to reduce acid rain in the Adirondacks. U.S. District Court Judge David N. Hurd in Utica ruled that the 2000 Air Pollution Mitigation Law was unconstitutional and conflicted with the federal Clean Air Act by restructuring the nationwide trading system whereby tons of sulfur dioxide emissions, or credits, are swapped freely between states.

Acid Precipitation
The term ?acid rain? is used most often, but ?acid precipitation? is more accurate since it can also reach the ground as dry particles in dust and smoke. Acidic water can flow over and through the ground, affecting plants, animals, soils, and bodies of water. In dry areas, the acidic dust is deposited on buildings and other materials, causing corrosion and decay. The dust can also be washed from these surfaces, leading to additional runoff. And, while acid precipitation does not affect human health directly; the particulate matter associated with acid precipitation can contribute to low visibility and potential adverse health effects, particularly among those with respiratory disorders. The United States, Canada, and Europe have pollutant controls and emissions trading programs in place that have significantly reduced the amount of sulfur dioxide stemming from industrial sources. Nitrogen oxides stem primarily from automobile exhaust, and remain an issue as older catalytic converters inadequately address their emission. Air quality should continue to improve as these older vehicles are replaced. The region most affected by acidification is currently Asia. In China, the widespread use of high-sulfur coal throughout the country contributes to a serious air quality problem. Southwestern China has been particularly affected, with damage to both forests and crops. China is now beginning to take steps to reduce the emissions that contribute to acid rain, instituting a trading program similar to that used in the U.S. Other areas in Asia have also experienced significant damage from acidic deposition; probably the most noted is India's Taj Mahal which has suffered severe weathering and corrosion due to acid precipitation.

Acid Rain Program
More Information The overall goal of the Acid Rain Program is to achieve significant environmental and public health benefits through reductions in emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO ) and nitrogen oxides (NO x primary causes of acid rain . To achieve this goal at the lowest cost to society, the program employs both traditional and innovative, market-based approaches for controlling air pollution. In addition, the program encourages energy efficiency and pollution prevention.
