How are acid rain and pollution connected?



  1. 0 Votes

    Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and and nitrogen oxides, which react with water to form acids. Vehicles and industrial power plants are largely to blame for this pollution-linked acid rain. On the other hand, natural causes such as lightning and volcanoes can lead to acid rain as well. As you can see in the image below, high acidity rain is concentrated in the Northeast of the U.S. where there are many cities and industrial power plants.
