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.. ...
acid rain Acid rain is perhaps the most well known and recognizable form of pollution that is affecting the world today. Acidity is measured using a pH scale, with 7 being neutral. So anything below 7 is considered to be acidic, but as far as acid rain goes, the baseline for identifying acid rain is generally below the pH level of 5.6. But there have been many debates over this value and many more ...
Caused by air pollution, acid rains spread and damage involves weather, chemistry, soil, and the life cycles of plants and animals on the land and from acid rain in the water. Scientists have discovered that air pollution from the burning of fossil fuels is the major cause of acid rain.
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. The majority of Chinas sulfur dioxide emissions come from burning coal in electricity generating and industrial power plants. The acid rain that results has serious potential to damage crops, wildlife, and human health.. ...

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) along with nitrous oxides, are two leading causes of acid rain. When SO2 is emitted into the atmosphere, it reacts with other chemicals to form sulfuric acid, which then returns to the surface through precipitation. Sulfur dioxide affects the lungs and makes it hard to breath. Sulfur dioxide reacts to form sulfate particles which when inhaled frequently enough can cause asthma or bronchitis. In operations with SO2 Gas Cylinders, where Sulfur Dioxide gas may accidently be released in large concentrations, it can cause immediate danger to life and health. In these applications, Heil provides emergency release scrubbers to reduce the risk of excessive exposure and contain the release. ...
Burning fossil fuels can cause acid rain, global warming, oil spills, and air and water pollution. All of these things are VERY bad for the environment.

Reducing air pollution from the largest sources of emissions, including coal-fired power plants, is one of EPAs National Enforcement Initiatives for 2011-2013. SO2 and NOx, two key pollutants emitted from power plants, have numerous adverse effects on human health and are significant contributors to acid rain, smog, and haze. These pollutants are converted in the air to fine particles of particulate matter that can cause severe respiratory and cardiovascular impacts, and premature death. Reducing these harmful air pollutants will benefit the communities located near NIPSCO facilities, particularly communities disproportionately impacted by environmental risks and vulnerable populations, including children. Considering that air pollution from power plants can drift significant distances downwind, this settlement will reduce air pollution outside the immediate region ...
StateImpact Pennsylvania. By Susan Phillips. August 17, 2016. Air pollutants from Pennsylvanias natural gas production sites increased from 2013 to 2014, according to data released Wednesday by the Department of Environmental Protection. The air inventory data for shale gas production relies on information submitted by the industry, and includes emissions from compressor stations that utilize gas from coal beds, conventional, and unconventional wells. Although the number of well sites reporting information to the DEP dropped by 2.7 percent from 2013 to 2014, the number of pipeline related infrastructure sites increased by 12 percent.. Read enough? Click here to send a letter to Governor Wolf and your representatives.. Sulfur dioxide emissions saw the greatest jump, increasing 40 percent over 2013 levels. Sulfur dioxide contributes to acid rain, and causes respiratory problems including asthma. Other air pollutants that contribute to public health impacts also increased, including nitrogen ...
There is more nitrogen gas in the air than any other kind of gas. About 4/5ths of Earths atmosphere is nitrogen gas! A molecule of nitrogen gas is made up of two nitrogen atoms. There are other molecules in the atmosphere that have nitrogen atoms in them too, such as nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). These molecules are air pollutants. They are made in the engines of cars and other places. They also make other kinds of air pollution such as peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN), a dangerous chemical in smog. They also help make nitric acid. Nitric acid is part of acid rain. Down on the land, nitrogen atoms are important parts of living creatures, soils, and even rivers. The Nitrogen Cycle explains how nitrogen atoms move around in the environment, including through living things like you and me! ...

Water is a natural solvent. Rain water is acidic due to carbon dioxide picked up in the atmosphere. Water and CO2 make carbonic acid (acid rain). Water hardness is primarily calcium and magnesium. Calcium is limestone - common throughout Midwest. Acid water dissolves limestone, iron, and other minerals in soil. All pure water has an affinity for metals. Surface water supplies are generally low in dissolved minerals. Well supplies vary in dissolved minerals with depth and location. pH is the measure of acidity of a water supply based on the hydrogen ion. Water with a pH below 7.0 is corrosive. Above is considered alkaline water which is not a problem except in industry.. Ionization. Minerals dissolved in water are present as ions.

Making Peace With the Planet, by Barry Commoner. The assault on environmental quality results from the use of systems of production that yield useful goods but also generate pollutants.. The engines that power modern cars and trucks also produce pollutants that turn into smog and acid rain. Once disseminated, the synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers heavily used in agricultural production also become toxic pollutants that poison our water and food. As the petrochemical industry produces plastics, detergents, and numerous other synthetic chemicals, it also generates almost as much in toxic emissions.. Fuel-burning and nuclear power plants produce electricity; but the one also emits gases that are overheating the planet, and the other leaves huge stores of radioactive waste that will outlive the industry itself.. The current environmental crisis is the unanticipated outcome of the ways in which the corporations that are entrusted with these decisions have chosen to provide us with ...
Advances in hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to obtain natural gas have made this resource an abundantly available and comparatively inexpensive source of fuel. While electric utility generators have traditionally favored large coal-or nuclear-powered plants to supply electricity to a designated grid, natural gas has steadily risen in popularity within this sector since the 1990s - if it continues along its current path, natural gas is projected to overtake coal and nuclear power as a primary source of alternative energy over the next few decades. Automakers, however, are still struggling to put Americas prodigious volumes of natural gas to their use. While coal may still be the cheapest means of generating electricity, it is also the dirtiest, causing smog, soot, acid rain, and other toxic air pollutants. Natural gas burns cleaner, and releases dramatically fewer emissions into the atmosphere - a nearly 30 percent reduction in carbon output and toxins. Its also cheaper by as much as $1 per ...

In November 2012, SPFA released final reports that documented the SPF industrys Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) study. This announcement and detailed report can be found by clicking here. This study documents the detailed results of the overwhelmingly net-positive environmental impacts of generic LD, MD and roofing SPF products from cradle to end-of-life. The six impacts studied include primary energy demand, global warming (carbon footprint), ozone depletion, eutrophication (nitrogen release), smog and acidification (acid rain). While the study met all requirements of ISO-14040 and 14044, the results need to be summarized in a third-party environmental product declaration (EPD). EPDs, following the Product Category Rules (PRC) for insulation, provide an important verification of the results that assist in product selection under sustainable building programs such as USGBCs LEED, IgCC, GreenGlobes and other similar programs. UL Environments will be the most likely developer of the SFPAs ...

for you no longer have a harbor. Two boys casting a fishnet below gas flares, sulfuric dioxide, methane, acid rain. And despair, my body a fallen tree. So let 350 be the bridge I become lifting my child when our kayak doesnt meet the dock. Fighting to get back 350: hydroponic tomatoes, hoop-house lettuce, neighbors planting pawpaw trees. My man pushing a wheelbarrow, bending to gather storm-tossed sticks. 350 is more bike lanes, more skateboards. More darning of socks. My daughter about to be born: too late for a heparin lock, a heart monitor-only the power within me, the pain for which Ive longed, and her release into our world gone beyond its limit. Contract. Push. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle, and upper decks. 350, let it be a boomerang, a ricochet. A beeswax candle on my birthday cake. 350, your husband, daughter . . . and you will enter . . . sister, lover, lifelong partner snugged against the fine ark of your ribs. ...
The reason sulfur is important isnt that the world is running short. Quite the opposite: Theres enough locked away in the worlds fossil fuel deposits to feed current levels of demand for more than 7,000 years. The problem is that theres too much of it.. The proximate issue centers on the worlds shipping fleet. Atmospheric levels of sulfur dioxide have been falling since the early 1980s, when fears around acid rain, asthma and heart disease saw coal-fired power plants install scrubbers to remove the pollutant from their smokestacks. The maritime industry, however, has been stuck in the past.. For years, cargo ships have been powered by about 4 million barrels a day of the dirtiest, bottom-of-the-barrel fraction of crude, a tarry substance known as bunker fuel or residual fuel oil. Thats set to change in less than 18 months, after the International Maritime Organization adopted rules that would keep the sulfur content of the bunker fuel on standard ships below 0.5 percent from Jan. 1, ...

Much of the environment problems arise from the supply and utilization of energy for industrial, transportation and domestic markets. The use of fossil fuels can result in environmental, atmospheric, and terrestrial problems, including organic, acid rain, and global warming hazards. Here I will address the CO{sub 2} global greenhouse problem and touch upon the nuclear industry and its dilemma as well. We recognize the possibility of global natural feedback phenomena which may limit and mitigate anthropomorphic global greenhouse climate change, however, here I am limiting the discussion to anthropomorphic (man made) technological mitigation process as opposed to adaptation which means adapting to change. ...
As an international leader in refractories for SRUs, HarbisonWalker Internationals refractory products ensure that SRU reaction furnaces operate reliably when faced with high temperatures, increased throughput, and harsh, corrosive environments.. Di-Hydrogen-Sulfide and sour water are stripped from hydrocarbon products in other units of the refinery and routed through the SRU to be converted to elemental sulfur. Without this conversion, the sulfur oxides would be expelled into the air after incineration, resulting in acid rain and various health issues. The main focus of the SRU, the reaction furnace, burns part of the feed at temperatures up to 2800°F. The gases then pass through a series of converters and condensers that convert the acid gases to elemental sulfur and condense them to liquid. This method is known as the Claus process.. HarbisonWalker International offers a full portfolio of high-temperature alumina firebricks as well as lightweight brick and castables for efficient and ...
The process is already under way. During the Mao era, the Peoples Liberation Army ritualistically fired shells at the Taiwan-controlled island of Quemoy; now, the mainland spews garbage that floats across the mile-and-a-quarter-wide channel and washes up on Quemoys beaches at the rate of 800 metric tons a year. Acid rain caused by Chinas sulfur-dioxide emissions severely damages forests and watersheds in Korea and Japan and impairs air quality in the United States. Every major river system flowing out of China is threatened with one sort of cataclysm or another, including pollution (Amur), damming (Mekong, Salween), diverting (Brahmaputra), and melting of the glacial source (Mekong, Salween, Brahmaputra). The surge in untreated waste and agricultural runoff pouring into the Yellow and China Seas has caused frequent fish die-offs and red-tide outbreaks, and overfishing is endangering many ocean species. The growing Chinese taste for furs and exotic foods and pets is devastating neighboring ...
Introduction. In what way can the hydrological cycle be regarded as a system and what impact may human activity have on flows and stores? The hydrological cycle is a system, in the sense that it shows the global circulation of water/moisture between the atmosphere, land, and the seas and oceans. A system is a series of inputs outputs and outputs, and can be used at any scale. For example it could be either a global hydrological cycle or an individual drainage basin. In the global cycle there are a series of stores, such as the seas and the ice caps. It also contains flows or transfers that link the stores together. For example, evaporation. Water is moved between the stores, and the amount varies depending on the area or the given time. more. Middle. Acid rain is created by power stations and other industrial factories pumping waste material into the atmosphere, where it mixes with the moisture in the clouds. As a result, the surface of the water becomes covered in a thick layer of ...

Unfortunately, it is difficult to reliably supply our bodies with sufficient magnesium, even from a good, balanced whole foods diet. First of all, modern agricultural methods favor the universal use of NPK fertilizers (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium). Both potassium and phosphorus are antagonists of magnesium in the soil, and on calcareous soils create a relative magnesium deficiency (the magnesium present is bound and therefore unavailable to the crop). On sandy or loamy soils that are slightly acid, an actual magnesium deficiency often exists, as the magnesium leaches from the soil and is also unavailable to the crop. This leaching also occurs in response to acid rain. Magnesium, in fact, is one of the most depleted minerals in farm soils. To add insult to injury, new plant hybrids are continually introduced that have been bred to survive on these mineral-depleted soils. Of course, when mineral-depleted crops are eaten by animals or by us, they will sooner or later cause disease. Even ...
Mapeshield CI 100 is a surface-applied corrosion inhibitor designed to penetrate concrete structures and protect embedded steel reinforcement. It forms a protective layer on the surface of the steel reinforcing bar to inhibit corrosion caused by carbonation, the presence of chlorides and other contaminants in the concrete (such as deposits from acid rain and industrial pollution), and helps to prevent additional cracking and spalling in the future. Mapeshield CI 100 can be applied by spray, brush or roller. By diffusing into the hardened pore structure of concrete to the steel reinforcing bars, Mapeshield CI 100 delays the corrosion process and reduces overall corrosion activity. ARCAT provides architectural information on building materials, manufacturers, specifications, BIM families and CAD details.

Immediately following Iraqs invasion of Kuwait, predictions were made of an environmental disaster stemming from Iraqi threats to blow up captured Kuwaiti oil wells. Speculation ranging from a nuclear winter type scenario, to heavy acid rain and even short term immediate global warming were presented at the World Climate Conference in Geneva that November.[32][33] On January 10, 1991, a paper appearing in the Journal Nature, stated Paul Crutzens calculations that the setting alight of the Kuwait oil wells would produce a nuclear winter, with a cloud of smoke covering half of the Northern Hemisphere after 100 days had passed and beneath the cloud, temperatures would be reduced by 5-10 Celsius.[34] This was followed by articles printed in the Wilmington Morning Star and the Baltimore Sun newspapers in mid to late January 1991, with the popular television scientist personality of the time, Carl Sagan, who was also the co-author of the first few nuclear winter papers along with Richard P. Turco, ...
In Aesops fable about the boy who cried Wolf!, the point of the tale is that eventually there was a wolf, but the boy was not believed because he had given too many false alarms. In my view, the Covid-19 coronavirus is indeed a wolf, or at least has the potential to be one. Many people, including President Trump, think we are over-reacting, because so many past scares have been exaggerated. I think thats wrong.. Coming from you, a friend said to me the other day, thats scary. I am known as an obsessive and serial debunker of false alarms. I have been at it for almost 40 years ever since I realised as a science journalist in the 1980s that acid rain was being wildly overblown as a threat to forests (I was right). This scepticism has served me well. I did not believe that mad cow disease would kill hundreds of thousands of people, as some experts were claiming in the mid 1990s. In the end just 177 died. Likewise, I refused to panic over bird flu, swine flu, SARS or ebola.. I set out to ...
We have acid all around us. Weve got acid rain, acid reflux, and acid rock. Theres acidophilus, antacids, and acidic comments. Im not trying to get Forrest Gump on you; the destination for this rant is the fact that many acids around us are hidden. The acids Im referring to are acids hidden in what we put in our bodies, posing as nutrition. Im talking about acids that rob us of our good health; that affect our quality of life. These acids, when left unchecked, can bring about an unhealthy state of tune in our bodies. Mind you, Im not talking death here (at least not immediately); Im sharing the type of acid effects that sneak up on you quietly, like a thief in the night. This insidious acid health condition is called low-grade, chronic acidosis. Im trying to stir your pot a little, because you should be angry about what causes this under-the-radar condition. Everyone should be furious about what isnt being done to stop it!. Low grade, chronic acidosis isnt something thats going to ...
The Emeryville Research Center of Shell Development Company in Emeryville, California was a major research facility of Shell Oil Company in the United States from 1928 until 1972, when Shell Development relocated to Houston, Texas. Shell Developments Emeryville facilities were located on about 27 acres (110,000 m2), included nearly 90 buildings at its peak, and when decommissioned in 1972, employed a staff of about 1500. Tricresyl phosphate (TCP) and other gasoline additives were developed at Emeryville. Tar sands extraction and other techniques to increase oil reserves were studied at bench scale and in pilot plants. Shell Development also pioneered de-sulfurization methods and standards for gasoline and motor oil, which were significant in reducing acid rain and other adverse environmental effects of auto exhaust gases. Shell Development scientist Thomas Schatzky also pioneered fingerprinting techniques to identify oil spills origins. Shell Development Emeryville scientists created the epoxy ...
A joint U.S.-Soviet curricular effort is aiming to make junior diplomats out of high-school students.. The U.S.-Soviet Global Thinking Project, a curriculum model now in its pilot phase, is the culmination of a nine-year collaboration between Georgia State University professors and members of the Soviet Academy of Pedagogical Sciences. The goal of the program is to improve communication and cultural understanding between students of both nations.. Beginning this spring, 360 students at six junior and senior high schools in Georgia, California, and Pittsburgh, and five schools in Moscow and Leningrad will work together to solve theoretical ecological and environmental problems by exchanging comments through a computer hookup. Although discussions may begin with subjects such as acid rain and global warming, organizers expect student debate to explore political issues as well..

The main use of calcium carbonate is in the construction industry, either as a building material or limestone aggregate for road building or as an ingredient of cement or as the starting material for the preparation of builders lime by burning in a kiln. However, because of weathering mainly caused by acid rain,[17] calcium carbonate (in limestone form) is no longer used for building purposes on its own, but only as a raw/primary substance for building materials.. Calcium carbonate is also used in the purification of iron from iron ore in a blast furnace. The carbonate is calcined in situ to give calcium oxide, which forms a slag with various impurities present, and separates from the purified iron.[18]. In the oil industry, calcium carbonate is added to drilling fluids as a formation-bridging and filtercake-sealing agent; it is also a weighting material which increases the density of drilling fluids to control the downhole pressure. Calcium carbonate is added to swimming pools, as a pH ...

A serious underprediction of ambient sulfate (SO4(2-) by two comprehensive, Eulerian models of acid deposition, the Regional Acid Deposition Model (RADM) and the Acid Deposition and Oxidant Model (ADOM), was found in the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program phase of the Eulerian Model Evaluation Field Study (EMEFS) model evaluation. Two hypotheses were proposed to explain the cause of the underprediction in RADM: insufficient SO4(2-) production by nonprecipitating convective clouds and insufficient primary SO4(2-) emissions. Modifications of the RADM cloud and scavenging module to better simulate nonprecipitating cumulus clouds are described in detail. Three contrasting pairs of tests using data from the EMEFS were applied to these hypotheses: source vs. downwind regions; mid summer vs. late summer seasons, sunny-dry vs. cloudy-wet synoptic types. The SO4(2-) emissions hypothesis, tested by artificially boosting SO4(2-) emissions, fared better than expected but was rejected because of ...

  • Acid rain" is a popular term referring to the deposition of a mixture from wet (rain, snow, sleet, fog, cloudwater, and dew) and dry (acidifying particles and gases) acidic components. (
  • Acid deposition as an environmental issue (discussed later in the article) would include additional acids other than H2CO3. (
  • Ralph S. Hames of Cornell University and his colleagues combined data on the breeding behavior and distribution patterns of Wood Thrushes with information regarding acid rain deposition and soil acidity. (
  • According to the team's final model, which includes statistics from 653 sites, the probability of Wood Thrushes attempting to breed decreases as the deposition of ions from acid precipitation increases. (
  • Acid rain has two varieties of deposition: wet and dry. (
  • Wet deposition relates to acidic rain, fog and snow. (
  • The existing critical loads (kg/ha/y) were developed only for water ecosystems and were defined as the level of wet sulphate deposition that would maintain a pH of 6 in 95% of lakes (1997 Canadian Acid Rain Assessment). (
  • Our goal is to meet the threshold for critical loads for acid deposition in the province. (
  • The 2004 Canadian Acid Deposition Science Assessment provides recent estimates of the major source regions affecting Nova Scotia ecosystems. (
  • Wet deposition refers to any type of precipitation that takes acids from the atmosphere and deposits them on the earth's surface. (
  • Acidic deposition, or acid rain as it is commonly known, occurs when emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) react in the atmosphere with water, oxygen, and oxidants to form various acidic compounds. (
  • Acid deposition is any type of precipitation - rain, snow, sleet, hail, or fog - that has a lower pH (and is therefore more acidic ) than normal. (
  • These pollutants may also collect on the Earth's surface and the rain may combine with it upon arrival to the Earth, so the term " acid deposition " is often preferred over acid rain. (
  • As a result this type of acid deposition is sometimes called Acid Mine Drainage . (
  • The negative effect of acid deposition increases the acidity of the soil and lakes water. (
  • 1. Sources and effects of acid rain and other forms of acid deposition. (
  • Wet deposition is the removal of substances in water (rain, snow, hail, fog). (
  • The true name for acid rain is really acid deposition, and can be classed as wet-deposition (rain, sleet, etc...) or as dry-deposition. (
  • Acid rain, or acid deposition, is a broad term that includes any form of precipitation with acidic components, such as sulfuric or nitric acid that fall to the ground from the atmosphere in wet or dry forms. (
  • These include damage to humans from inhaling and consuming food affected by acid rain, damaging acid deposition in aquatic and forest ecosystems, and damage to hard materials, including building materials, by acid rain. (
  • We all believe that acid deposition is generally in the form of rain, which is not always true. (
  • Acid deposition may also be dry in nature. (
  • o Wet Deposition: This is the deposition of acid by precipitation in the form of rain, snow, etc., which we have extensively explained above. (
  • Acid deposition is considered to be one of the greatest threats to the environment in industrialised countries. (
  • Acid rain is rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that it has elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). (
  • Conventional pH electrodes, which are designed to function in high-conductivity solutions, show slow and erratic response in pure water samples such as acid precipitation. (
  • Nova Scotia has low tolerance for acid precipitation because of the low buffering capacity and neutralization abilities of water and land ecosystems in most of the province, especially in south-western Nova Scotia. (
  • Critical load is the amount of acid precipitation that an ecosystem can endure before long-term harmful effects occur. (
  • This idea is sometimes referred to as acid rain since it encompasses a wide range of acidic precipitation. (
  • In its most basic form, acid rain may be defined as the precipitation of acid in the form of rain. (
  • Acid rains are form of precipitation with high levels of nitric and sulphuric acids, they can also occur in the form of snow, mist or fog that settles down to earth. (
  • Also, hand drying the vehicle or completely covering the automobile when precipitation occurs can prevent problems caused by acid rain. (
  • [7] The acidity of precipitation can be seen in Figure 3 in the United States, and due to a combination of wind flows from the US and the production of pollutants within Canada, Eastern Canada also suffers from acid rain [8] . (
  • The resulting rain or snowfall is moreacidic than normal precipitation. (
  • Acid rain or any other form of precipitation that causes mainly by pollutants like sulfur dioxide or nitrogen dioxide has adverse effects on the environment or humans. (
  • Acid rain refers to rain, snow or other forms of precipitation with a pH of less than 5.6. (
  • During the formation and fall of rain and snow, they absorb and dissolve substances such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides in the air , forming acidic precipitation with a pH lower than 5.6. (
  • Acidic species are deposited to the ground both in precipitation (rain, snow, hail) and as dry particles. (
  • Acid rain refers to rain, or any form of precipitation that is acidic in nature, which means it contains hazardous compounds and causes a low pH leve (contains elevated levels of hydrogen ions). (
  • While there have been reports of some very light rain in and around Seattle, no precipitation has reached Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where the National Weather Service measures rain levels. (
  • The gases emitted from various sources mix with the rain to form an acidic precipitation, called acid rain. (
  • Any form of precipitation which is acidic in nature is called acid rain. (
  • This phenomenon of acidic rain water precipitation is called acid rain. (
  • In this work, Finite Element analysis is carried out on an outdoor High Voltage (HV) glass insulator string exposed to acid precipitation using Comsol Multiphysics. (
  • This makes a very mild form of carbonic acid naturally. (
  • The burning of coal, oil and gasoline gives off sulfur, nitrogen and carbon that combine with water vapor in the air to make acids, like sulfuric acid, nitric acid and carbonic acid. (
  • Their smokestacks carry these waste gases into the clouds where they mix with water vapor to form weak acids - sulfuric, nitric and carbonic acids. (
  • The usual clean rain we feel, despite the fact that it is not clean, i.e. water and carbon dioxide combine to create mild carbonic acid, which is not very damaging on its own. (
  • Sulfuric acid ( H2SO4 ), nitric acid ( HNO3 ), and carbonic acid ( H2CO3 ) are the major components of acid rain. (
  • this is due to the combination of carbon dioxide with the water in the air to form carbonic acid [3] . (
  • It reacts with water to form the carbonic acid solution . (
  • Pure water has a pH of 7 but when carbon dioxide dissolves into it, it results in a weak carbonic acid giving normal rain a pH of about 5.6 at a typical atmosphere. (
  • Rain is naturally slightly acidic, since picks up carbon dioxide in the air, producing carbonic acid. (
  • CO 2 combines with water to form carbonic acid (H 2 CO 3 ). (
  • Carbonic acid ionizes in water to form low concentrations of carbonate and hydronium ions. (
  • Carbonic acid is a weak acid. (
  • Carbonic Acid d. (
  • The main source of sulfur and nitrogen compounds that result in acid rain are anthropogenic, but nitrogen oxides can also be produced naturally by lightning strikes and sulphur dioxide is produced by volcanic eruptions. (
  • Natural sources such as volcanoes, sea spray, rotting vegetation and plankton are all contributors to acid rain, but burning fossil fuels, such as coal and oil which are referred to as dry emissions are largely to blame for more than half of the emissions into the world.2 Nationally, one hundred and twenty tons of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide are emitted into the air each day.4A. (
  • How is acid rain formed?When the sulfur dioxide reaches the atmosphere, it oxidizes to first form a sulfate ion. (
  • About 70% of acid rain comes from sulfur dioxide (SO2) which dissolves into water (H2O) to form sulfuric acid. (
  • Acid Rain is created when a large industrial facility burns coal or oil which gives off sulfur, nitrogen and carbon into the air. (
  • Enacted under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 with the goal of reducing sulfur dioxide emissions from electric utilities, the Acid Rain Program is often cited as evidence that an emissions trading program can reduce the costs of pollution reduction. (
  • New rules cut emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, key elements in the creation of acid rain. (
  • Acid rain is caused by sulfur and nitrous oxides mixing with water in the atmosphere and can cause tremendous consequences in the environment. (
  • Acid rain results when sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) are emitted into the atmosphere and transported by wind and air currents. (
  • Acid rain is produced when water in the air combines with nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide , two types of pollutants , and then falls down the surface of the Earth. (
  • This type of acid runoff is commonly found at old abandoned mine sites where sulfur-bearing minerals were previously mined for industrial and economic use. (
  • Acid rain is caused when the chemical reaction happens between sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides meet and these 2 chemicals are in air pollution. (
  • It is interesting to note that amendments to the Clean Air Act of 1990 implemented a cap and trade system for sulfur dioxide emissions, the primary cause of acid rain and stream acidification. (
  • For example, sulfur oxides from burning coal mix with water to make sulfuric acid and sulfurous acid. (
  • The sulfur compounds sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, released by thermal power plants, oxidize and hydrolyze in the atmosphere, creating sulfuric acid, which then pours down to earth as acid rain . (
  • Sulfur dioxide is released by burning oil, and the coal industry reacts with rainwater to form sulfuric acid. (
  • This sulfur trioxide reacts with rainwater or moisture and gives sulfuric acid. (
  • Sulfur and nitrogen dioxide are the two gases that cause acid rain. (
  • Most of the acid rain in India is caused by the burning of coal with high sulfur content, and the exhaust gas emitted by various motor vehicles is also an important reason for the formation of acid rain. (
  • Industrial activity on Earth has contributed pollutants such as nitric oxide and sulfur dioxide to the atmosphere, and these chemicals fall to the ground as acid rain. (
  • Like the acid rain on Earth, that on Venus results from the combination of sulfur dioxide and water. (
  • The layer, which is between 90 to 100 kilometers (56 to 68 miles) above the surface, baffled scientists, who believed that the intense solar radiation at that altitude should destroy any sulfur dioxide that had not combined with water to form sulfuric acid. (
  • The discovery shows that some sulfuric acid droplets evaporate at altitudes higher than previously thought and raises serious questions about proposals to inject sulfur dioxide -- which deflects sunlight -- into Earth's atmosphere to combat global warming. (
  • When sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides react with water vapor and other chemicals in the presence of sunlight, various acidic compounds form in the air and come to the earth as acid rain. (
  • While acid rain cannot harm humans directly , the sulfur dioxide that creates it can cause health problems. (
  • Acid rain results when sulfur dioxide (SO 2 ) and nitrogen oxides (NO X ) are emitted into the atmosphere and transported by wind and air currents. (
  • Human activities leading to chemical gas emissions such as sulfur and nitrogen are the primary contributors to acid rain. (
  • Acid rain is formed when pollutants called oxides of sulfur and nitrogen, contained in power plant smoke, factory smoke, and car exhaust, react with the moisture in the atmosphere . (
  • The two most important pollutants that contribute to acid rain are sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, which react with moisture in the atmosphere forming acid rain. (
  • When the water droplets in the rains get acidified, these droplets after falling on earth make it get affected with the chemicals like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, etc. all these chemicals deplete the fertility of soil and make harm to the plants. (
  • Acid rain is the result of excessive emissions of sulfur and nitrogen caused by human activity, which reacts with other compounds to form acids. (
  • Acid rain happens when sulfur is burned in fuel and creates sulfur dioxide. (
  • The sulfur dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere and then converts to sulfuric acid that then drops from the sky as acidic rain in all parts of the globe. (
  • As a result of the acid rain concern and other associated negative environmental impacts, government environmental regulators have taken action to put a squeeze on the levels of sulfur allowed in fuel. (
  • Despite the existence of technology to reduce the pollutants that cause acid rain, the emissions of sulfur and nitric oxides are likely to increase because among several factors of political resistance to regulatory controls. (
