Climate Change (Acid Rain-7)

In this article we will discuss Climate Change (Acid Rain-7)

The primary reason for concern is that acid deposition acidifies streams, and taken on coarse, sandy soils low in lime: The effect is seen particularly in headwater areas and in wet montane environments, wherever sulphate loading from anthropogenic sources is strong.
The chemical and physical consequences of lake acidification include, increased leaching of calcium from terrestrial soils, mobilization of heavy metals such as aluminium, zinc, and manganese and an increase in the transparency of lake waters. The biological consequences
include market changes in communities of aquatic plants and animals, with a progressive lessening of their diversity.
