acidification


Acidification is caused by acid depositions of three main pollutants: sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and ammonia (NH3). Acid depositions have negative impacts on water, forests, and soil as well as causing damage to buildings and monuments. The main sources of emissions of acidifying substances are fossil fuel combustion used for ener [..]
