    Acid rain can cause chemical changes to soil, such as saturation of nitrogen and a decline in nutrients, rendering the soil less capable of sustaining plant life.  On a large scale, this can cause what’s known as forest decline.

    The soil has abundant amount of various metals and minerals. When these metals come in contact with acid rain there can be some harmful chemical reactions. These reactions can lead to soil erosion. Acid rains are known to reduce the fertility of the soil, leaving the land barren. Harmful acids can also reduce the amount of soil micro organisms which perform important job of breaking down the dead and decayed plants and other beings.
