When polluted air mixes with rain, snow, and fog, acid precipitation forms. This acidity has caused people to worry about the environment. Another concern is its effect on historic buildings and monuments. This booklet focuses on acid rain and its impact on our Nation¿s capital. In 1997, rain in Washington, D.C., had an average acidity of 4.2, about as acid as a carbonated drink and more than 10 times as acid as clean, unpolluted rain. This booklet defines acid rain, explains what effects it has on marble and limestone buildings, and shows, on a walking tour, some of the places in our Nation¿s capital where you can see the impact of acid precipitation. Includes a Glossary of Geologic and Architectural Terms and a map. Color photos.

'Acid rain' is a broad term used to describe several ways that acids fall out of the atmosphere. A more precise term is acid deposition, which has two parts: wet and dry. Wet deposition refers to acidic rain, fog, and snow. As this acidic water flows over and through the ground, it affects a variety of plants and animals. The strength of the effects depends on many factors, including how acidic the water is, the chemistry and buffering capacity of the soils involved, and the types of fish, trees, and other living things that rely on the water. Dry deposition refers to acidic gases and particles. About half of the acidity in the atmosphere falls back to earth through dry deposition. The wind blows these acidic particles and gases onto buildings, cars, homes, and trees. Dry deposited gases and particles can also be washed from trees and other surfaces by rainstorms. When that happens, the runoff water adds those acids to the acid rain, making the combination more acidic than the falling rain alone. Prevailing winds blow the compounds that cause both wet and dry acid deposition across state and national borders, and sometimes over hundreds of miles. This new book combines an excellent background article with over 900 abstracts and book citations. Easy access is provided by title, author, and subject indexes.

What is loosely described as OCyacid rainOCO is not a new phenomenon. The burning of coal and other fossil fuelsmust have always resulted in the production of sulphur dioxide, and, where the combustion temperatures arehigh, of oxides of nitrogen. These may be present in various stages of oxidation and are often referred to assimply SOx and NOx. The Clean Air Act 1956 with its limitations on the burning of raw coal in urban areashas virtually eliminated OCysmogOCO in British cities but has not directly reduced the SOx emissions.It is only during the last decade or so that Acid Rain has become a topic of discussion vying with nuclearenergy in its emotive power. Initially attention was mainly concerned with the alleged effect of these gasesand the acids formed therefrom on lakes and rivers in Scandinavia. This concern was soon followed by reportsof serious damage to, for instance, the Black Forest, and, more locally, to lakes in the Galloway area anddamage in other parts of Scotland. In the case of these and many other examples, suggestions, still to beverified, have been made about the probable origin of the pollutants."

A detailed analysis of acidification effects on forest soil, rhizosphere and plant life and on the processes connecting them such as nutrient uptake and mineral cycling. Presents findings from the Solling project, an important long-term study on acid rain results in Germany's Black Forest, as well as other European forests which have experienced severe acid rain damage as a means of evaluating and predicting similar harm to U.S. forests.
