Climate Change (Acid Rain-8)

In this article we will discuss Climate Change (Acid Rain-8)

Acid deposition may further impoverish forests soils, developed on sandy substrata poor in lime. As a consequence of accelerated leaching of nutrients, such as phosphorous, potassium, magnesium and calcium from these soils, forest productivity would eventually be reduced.
Moreover, the acid sulphate particles that contribute to acid precipitation are in the size range that penetrates deep into the lung, and they may well exacerbate lung diseases and increase mortality rates.
