Effects of naturally-occurring acid fog on inflammatory mediators in airway and pulmonary functions in asthmatic patients. (1/58)

Floating fog occurs every summer in Kushiro City in Japan, and the annual average of fog water pH in the past 4 years has been under 5.0. We previously reported that epidemiologically fog was the most important positive factor contributing to increased hospital visits of asthmatic patients compared with other meteorological values and air pollutants. This study aimed to investigate the mechanism of the effects of naturally-occurring acid fog on asthmatic patients. We compared pulmonary functions and inflammatory mediators in induced sputum between the foggy (July 1995) and the non-foggy (May 1996) season, and assessed airway responsiveness to hypo-osmolar aerosol. Forty-four out of 118 asthmatic patients of Kushiro City residents participated, pulmonary function tests were completed in 36 patients, and sputum data were available in 26 patients in both seasons. Percent forced expiratory volume in 1 sec (FEV1) was significantly (P< 0.05) decreased, and % peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) had a trend to decrease in the foggy season more than in the non-foggy, and sputum eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) and interleukin (IL)-8 were higher in the foggy season but not significantly. A moderate inverse correlation was revealed between sputum ECP and %PEFR in the foggy season (r= -0.55, P<0.005). Subjects were divided into two groups according to the best PEFR; one had >10% lower PEFR levels in the foggy season than in the non-foggy season (Group A, n = 7), the remainder did not (Group B, n = 19). In group A, sputum ECP was significantly increased (P< 0.01) in the foggy season, but there were no changes in IL-8 and prostaglandin D2. Ultrasonic nebulized distilled water provocation test revealed no differences between group A and B. These results suggested that eosinophilic inflammation rather than hypo-osmolar effect of fog might contribute to respiratory deterioration by inhalation of naturally-occurring acid fog.  (+info)

Evaluation of ionic pollutants of acid fog and rain using a factor analysis and back trajectories. (2/58)

Fog and rain water samples were collected at the same time in the Akita Hachimantai mountain range in northern Japan from June to September in 1998 and 1999. The various ion concentrations in these samples were analyzed, and the fog droplet sizes were measured for each fog event. As the fog droplet size increased, the ion concentration decreased. The slope of log-log plots of the concentration versus the droplet size differed with the kind of ion. In order to characterize the air pollutant, moreover, these data were quantitatively analyzed by an oblique rotational factor analysis. We found that three factors were extracted as the air pollutant source: (NH4)2SO4, acids (HNO3 + H2SO4) and sea-salt. Combining the factor analysis with the 72 h back-trajectory at 850 hPa level, we found that the contribution of each factor varied with the transport pattern of air masses.  (+info)

Adverse effects of acid rain on the distribution of the Wood Thrush Hylocichla mustelina in North America. (3/58)

Research into population declines of North American bird species has mainly focused on the fragmentation of habitat on the breeding or wintering grounds [Robinson, S. K., Thompson, F. R., Donovan, T. M., Whitehead, D. R. & Faaborg, J. (1995) Science 267, 1987-1990]. In contrast, research into declines of European species has mainly focused on intensification of agriculture [Donald, P. F., Green, R. E. & Heath, M. F. (2001) Proc. R. Soc. London Ser. B 268, 25-29] and the role played by the atmospheric deposition of pollutants, in particular, acid rain [Graveland, J. (1998) Environ. Rev. 6, 41-54]. However, despite widespread unexplained declines of bird populations in regions of heavy wet acid ion deposition [Sauer, J. R., Hines, J. E. & Fallon, J. (2001) The North American Breeding Bird Survey Results and Analysis 1966-2000 (Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, Laurel, MD)], no North American studies have presented evidence linking such widespread terrestrial bird declines to acid rain. To address the question of the role played by acid rain in population declines of eastern North American songbird species, we combine data from several sources. We use a multiple logistic regression model to test for adverse effects of acid rain on the Wood Thrush, while controlling for regional abundance, landscape-level habitat fragmentation, elevation, soil pH, and vegetation. We show a strong, highly significant, negative effect of acid rain on the predicted probability of breeding by this species, and interactions with elevation, low pH soils, and habitat fragmentation that worsen these negative effects. Our results suggest an important role for acid rain in recent declines of some birds breeding in the eastern United States, particularly in high elevation zones with low pH soils, and show the need to consider other large-scale influences, in addition to habitat fragmentation, when addressing bird population declines.  (+info)

Whither acid rain? (4/58)

Acid rain, the environmental cause celebre of the 1980s seems to have vanished from popular conscience. By contrast, scientific research, despite funding difficulties, has continued to produce hundreds of research papers each year. Studies of acid rain taught much about precipitation chemistry, the behaviour of snow packs, long-range transport of pollutants and new issues in the biology of fish and forested ecosystems. There is now evidence of a shift away from research in precipitation and sulfur chemistry, but an impressive theoretical base remains as a legacy.  (+info)

Nitrogen deposition in the greater Tehran metropolitan area. (5/58)

An investigation of air pollution in the Tehran metropolitan area between 1992-2000 indicated that there are significant amounts of nitrate ion (NO3-), over 30 kg/ha/year, deposited as wet deposition, compared to 13 kg/ha/year in the Chitgar Parkland near the Tehran metropolitan area. The amount of NO3- in warm seasons is twofold that of cold seasons, and there was a significant difference between cold and warm seasons. Annual wet deposition of ammonia (NH3) was 10 kg/ha/year in the Chitgar Parkland.  (+info)

To trade or not to trade? Criteria for applying cap and trade. (6/58)

The use of emissions trading (cap and trade) is gaining worldwide recognition as an extremely effective policy tool. The U.S. Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Emissions Trading Program has achieved an unprecedented level of environmental protection in a cost-effective manner. The successful results of the program have led domestic and foreign governments to consider the application of cap and trade to address other air quality issues. Certain analyses are particularly important in determining whether or not cap and trade is an appropriate policy tool. This paper offers a set of questions that can be used as criteria for determining whether or not cap and trade is the preferred policy approach to an environmental problem.  (+info)

Anthropogenic effects on forest ecosystems at various spatio-temporal scales. (7/58)

The focus in this review of long-term effects on forest ecosystems is on human impact. As a classification of this differentiated and complex matter, three domains of long-term effects with different scales in space and time are distinguished: Exploitation and conversion history of forests in areas of extended human settlement, Long-range air pollution and acid deposition in industrialized regions, Current global loss of forests and soil degradation. There is an evident link between the first and the third point in the list. Cultivation of primary forestland--with its tremendous effects on land cover--took place in Europe many centuries ago and continued for centuries. Deforestation today is a phenomenon predominantly observed in the developing countries, yet it threatens biotic and soil resources on a global scale. Acidification of forest soils caused by long-range air pollution from anthropogenic emission sources is a regional to continental problem in industrialized parts of the world. As a result of emission reduction legislation, atmospheric acid deposition is currently on the retreat in the richer industrialized regions (e.g., Europe, U.S., Japan); however, because many other regions of the world are at present rapidly developing their polluting industries (e.g., China and India), "acid rain" will most probably remain a serious ecological problem on regional scales. It is believed to have caused considerable destabilization of forest ecosystems, adding to the strong structural and biogeochemical impacts resulting from exploitation history. Deforestation and soil degradation cause the most pressing ecological problems for the time being, at least on the global scale. In many of those regions where loss of forests and soils is now high, it may be extremely difficult or impossible to restore forest ecosystems and soil productivity. Moreover, the driving forces, which are predominantly of a demographic and socioeconomic nature, do not yet seem to be lessening in strength. It can only be hoped that a wise policy of international cooperation and shared aims can cope with this problem in the future.  (+info)

An approach to balancing the positive and negative effects of elevated nitrogen oxides in the lower atmosphere on terrestrial plants. (8/58)

Elevated NOx in the lower atmosphere has three major effects on terrestrial plants. On the one hand, it causes an increase in surface ozone concentration. This reduces plant growth rate. On the other hand, elevated NOx causes an increase in the flux of oxidized N compounds from the atmosphere to the land surface. This plays a dual role in the life of terrestrial plants. Additional N in soils stimulates plant growth (N-fertilization effect), whereas soil acidification may negatively affect plants. A simple empirical model for calculating the overall effect of anthropogenic increase in NOx level has been developed. The model is based on experimental "cause-response" data presented in world scientific literature. Calculations showed that at the large scale, among the above-mentioned changes, elevated O3 plays a major and negative role in plant life. Its negative effect on plants is partly compensated by N fertilization in unmanaged ecosystems. Such compensation appears to be negligible in agricultural lands. There are vast territories in Euro--Asia--for instance, a territory of Russia--in which acid atmospheric deposition has no significant effect on terrestrial plants.  (+info)

There was a more effect of acid rain water in 0% and 8% as is basic Acid rain may cause the increase in breathing problems of adults and children. The United States and Canada begin study of cross-border acid rain transport. The term acid rain is actually somewhat misleading because even pure rainwater collected in areas remote from civilization is slightly acidic (pH ≈ 5.6) due to dissolved carbon dioxide, which reacts with water to give carbonic acid, a weak acid:. Generally rain water gets acidic because CO 2, SO 2 and NO 2 present in the atmosphere get dissolved in it forming carbonic acid (H 2 CO 3), sulphuric acid (H 2 SO 4) and nitric acid (HNO 3) respectively. Dec 17, 2018 · Rain that has a higher hydrogen ion concentration than about 10-5 M is referred as acid rain. Essay on Acid Rain. Pollution, volcanic eruptions, power-generating plants, forest fires and even lightning bolts are some of the causes of acid rain.

Introduction. ACID RAIN An international concern Gursharn Sandhu 10CR Acid rain: I am for, the reduction of sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, emissions, by 90% by the year 2010. We need to take drastic action because the effects on us are all very serious. We must protect ourselves and safeguard our future. Acid rain is the term used to describe one of the worst effects of nature. Acid rain is a mixture of sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, which are gasses being emitted into our atmosphere. These gases combine with water droplets in the atmosphere, to produce acid rain. These toxic gasses enter the clouds, so rain is highly acidic. As a result of acid rain, we suffer from terrible air pollution, so the government should recognize, this problem, and do something about it. Acid rain has a pH of about 2. This makes it very harmful, and dangerous. Acid rain is produced in countries with areas that are surrounded by industrialised buildings, such as coal fire power stations, working ...

There are many problems and effects caused by acid rain. Acid rain can cause buildings, statues and bridges to deteriorate faster than usual. another problem is it harms thousands of lakes, rivers, and streams worldwide. It disrupts lake ecosystems and kill wildlife in affected lakes, rivers and streams. Acid rain also damages soil and the tree roots in it. When soil is acidified, tree roots are damaged, leaving them not able to draw in enough nutrients to support the tree. When acid rain falls on trees, it makes their leaves turn brownish-yellow and the tree can no longer carry out photosynthesis properly. Another problem is it will harm people when they breathe in smog, acid rain in one of its many forms. Acid rain can also harm people in-directly. This happens when people eat fish caught in affected lakes or rivers. Also, if the water source is acidic enough, it will react with copper or lead pipes to harm humans. It also washes aluminum into the water supply. Birds can be harmed if they live ...
Acid rain is rain that contains nitric and sulfuric acid. Snow and fog can also contain nitric and sulfuric acid, and the dangerous effects are the same whether the acid is falling to the earth by rain or snow, or dancing in the air via fog. Any precipitation or dust particle that contains abnormal levels of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides is considered acid rain. Acid rain primarily affects the United States, Europe, and China. Acid rain directly affects the chemical and pH balances in ground water. The excess aluminum created by acid rain makes aquatic environments such as the sea, lakes, and streams, toxic. The animals that can withstand the imbalance of the waters natural minerals might survive, but quickly lose their food source as the weaker creatures die off. Animals that cannot withstand the chemical imbalances die, fail to reproduce, become deformed due to bone decalcification, or fail to grow normally. Algae growth is increased by acid rain, and rock scaling microbial and ...
Acid rain is created when rain mixes with pollution in the air. Pollution fills the air with an invisible gas called sulfur dioxide. (This gas is mainly a result of coal burning.) Sulfur dioxide combines with water in the air and sunlight to form a weak sulfuric acid that gives acid rain its bitter taste.. Acid rain can fall hundreds of miles from the nearest factory smokestacks. In cities, acid rain can cause damage and decay of buildings and statues. In rivers and lakes, it can kill fish, and on land, it can damage soil needed for the proper growth of plants.. Acid rain is a type of acid deposition, which can appear in many forms. Wet deposition is rain, sleet, snow, or fog that has become more acidic than normal. Dry deposition is another form of acid deposition, and this is when gases and dust particles become acidic.. Both wet and dry deposition can be carried by the wind, sometimes for very long distances. Acid deposition in dry form can be inhaled by people and can cause health problems ...
Acid rain is caused mostly by the combustion of fossil fuels containing sulfur and nitrogen. When sulphur and nitrogen are combusted, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are created and released into the atmosphere. Once these gases come in contact with water they become acids (Sulphuric acid and Nitric acid). This can happen either through wet deposition when rain, sleet or snow remove the gases from the air or through dry deposition when particles are deposited and absorbed into surfaces and later converted into acids when they come into contact with water. Coal power plants, electricity generation, driving a car, volcanoes and thunderstorms all contribute to acid rain. While there are natural causes of acid rain as mentioned, 90% of harmful emissions are a result of man-made sources. Acidity of rainwater is measured by the pH scale. It ranges from 0 which is highly acidic to 14 which is highly alkaline (basic). The scale point 7 is neutral. Clean rain measures at pH 5.6 while acid rain is ...
Lakes and streams in North America and Europe are beginning to recover from the damage inflicted by acid rain, scientists report. The recovery is being attributed to the passage and enforcement of environmental regulations and international agreements that reduce the emissions that produce acid rain. Emissions from burning fossil fuels steadily increased from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century until the 1970s. The sulfur and nitrates released into the atmosphere eventually return to the Earth as acid rain. This study provides the first conclusive evidence that international and regional agreements designed to reduce the emissions that cause acid rain, beginning with the United Nations First Sulphur Protocol in 1985, are working. Sulfur dioxide concentrations in north/central Europe air decreased by 63 percent between 1985 and 1996, according to the report. Sulfur dioxide is converted in the atmosphere to sulfuric acid, the main ingredient that produces acid rain. The ...
Preventing acid rain is the only way to stop its deadly impact on the environment. Acid rain is caused by pollution. It is released into the air naturally during a volcanic eruption, but the primary cause of excess nitric and sulfuric acid in the environment is manmade. Conserving energy is the number one way humans can prevent acid rain. Using less energy at home decreases the need for power plants. People also need to get out of their car. Using public transportation, biking or walking to destinations leaves fewer cars on the road, less emissions in the air, and a decreased dependency upon fossil fuels. Finally, manufacturing plants can reduce the emissions that cause acid rain by using scrubbers to clean and remove the dangerous chemicals from the pipes before they are released into the air ...
Many severe effects of air pollution on materials and structures come from acid rain. Acid rain dissolves limestone, marble, cement and sandstone. Acid rain stains and etches granite and corrodes metals like bronze. Acid rain damages structures such as the Taj Mahal and Thomas Jefferson Memorial.
Acid rain was a very common phenomenon before many governments stepped in to put an end to it. It is a term given to precipitation which contains various acids, but mostly sulfuric acid, which get formed when gases emitted by industry and vehicles combine with water droplets in the air. Acid rain is the most common term for this precipitation although it can also take the form of snow or fog depending on the climactic conditions of the place where it occurs. Acid rain or snow has a devastating effect on the land where it falls. It can destroy vegetation as well as animal life. Trees are stripped bare of their leaves when this rain falls on them. It can also damage the soil for good, making it unfit for cultivation. The negative results of acid rain do not stop at this. The acids wash into rivers and lakes where they kill fish and other marine life mercilessly. Certain places at high altitudes have suffered greatly as a result of these acids especially when trees in these places are surrounded by ...
Since the Industrial Revolution, emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides to the atmosphere have increased. In 1852, Robert Angus Smith was the first to show the relationship between acid rain and atmospheric pollution in Manchester, England. Though acidic rain was discovered in 1852, it was not until the late 1960s that scientists began widely observing and studying the phenomenon. The term "acid rain" was generated in 1972. Canadian Harold Harvey was among the first to research a "dead" lake. Public awareness of acid rain in the U.S increased in the 1970s after the New York Times promulgated reports from the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire of the myriad deleterious environmental effects demonstrated to result from it ...
Although acid rain is made more acidic from the chemicals and pollution produced by human activity, some naturally occurring rain actually has acid content in it, up to a pH level of 5. However, alkaline materials in the air counteracts the acidity in naturally occurring acid rain.. Therefore, even if greenhouse gases are eliminated, there would still be naturally occurring acid rain, but not as damaging as acid rain caused by chemicals and pollution.. ...
Many parts of China, including Beijing, have had serious problems with acid rain. This is not surprising, as China is the worlds largest emitter of sulfur dioxide - a major contributor to acid rain pollution.

Acid rain is a term for rain and other precipitation that is polluted mainly by sulfuric acid and nitric acid. These acids form when gases called sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides react with water vapor in the air. These gases come chiefly from the burning of coal, gas, and oil by cars, factories, and power plants. The acids in acid rain move through the air and water and harm the environment over large areas. Acid rain has killed entire fish populations in a number of lakes. It has also damaged many buildings, bridges, and statues. Scientists believe high concentrations of acid rain can harm forests and soil. Regions affected by acid rain include large parts of eastern North America, Scandinavia, and central Europe ...
When acidic air pollutants combine with water droplets in clouds, the water becomes acidic. When those droplets fall to the ground, the acid rain can damage the environment. Damage due to acid rain kills trees and harms animals, fish, and other wildlife. Acid rain can destroy the leaves of plants like in the picture at the left. When acid rain soaks into the ground, it can make the soil an unfit habitat for many living things. Acid rain also changes the chemistry of the water in lakes and streams, harming fish and other aquatic life. The thinning ozone layer harms living things ...
Acid rain results from the release of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOX) compounds into the air around us. Both of these substances can accumulate in the air and react with water molecules in the air to produce rain with high acid levels. In other words, each raindrop contains acid.. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are produced by human daily activities, such as smoke from motor vehicles, power plants, and the use of coal as electricity. In addition, volcanic eruptions also contribute to the presence of these two substances in the air. ...
Acid rain and its impact on the environment became a big issue in the 1980s and 90s, when studies were conducted to analyze how much acid deposition was collecting in streams and soil due to emissions in the air. The Environmental Protection Agency worked to reduce those emissions, according to Holly Salazar, regional air resource coordinator with the National Parks Service. Those policies, such as the Clean Air Act, have largely reduced acid depositions. 
"When we talk about air quality in Shenandoah, we have to talk about water, we talk about air, we talk about soils, we talk about plants, we talk about visibility - air quality affects a lot of different things," Salazar said. According to the Virginia Trout Stream Sensitivity Study, 2010 survey, conducted through the University of Virginia, "sulfur dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants declined by 64 percent" between 1990 and 2009. Many areas saw rapid improvements after those reductions. The Adirondack region in New York, for ...

Gene E. Likens and Richard T. Holmes-. Acid rain or acid precipitation or acid deposition as it is variably called, was first identified in North America more than five decades ago at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Scientists who were initiating the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study at that time were surprised that their first samples of rainfall, collected in 1963, were up to 100 times more acidic than they expected them to be. Indeed, the first sample collected on July 24, 1963 had a pH (a measure of acidity) level of 3.7. It was thought at the time that the background value in areas remote from major human activity would be around pH 5.6. Hydrogen ion concentration changes tenfold between each whole unit of the pH value, i.e. pH 4 is 10 times more acidic than pH 5.. This surprising discovery raised many questions, such as, How widespread was this problem? How long had precipitation been this acidic? What was the origin of the acidity? What might be ...

We pollute the water and the ground when we throw plastic, paper, glass, and other garbage on the ground or into the water instead of putting them in the trash…where they belong.. We also pollute the water and the ground when pour chemicals into water or onto the ground-things like motor oil and gas, or when we dont recycle the way we should.. Polluting the air is different, though. We pollute the air when we burn coal, gas, and other chemicals. The smoke or exhaust from these things travels through the air into the atmosphere and gets trapped in the clouds with the moisture that is evaporating from the earth to the clouds.. When the clouds get full of water, they empty the rain or snow back to earth along with all that dirt and pollution. This is called acid rain.. ...
