Acid Rain

Acid rain is rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, i.e. elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). It has harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals, and infrastructure. Acid rain is mostly caused by emissions of compounds of sulfur, nitrogen, and carbon which react with the water molecules in the atmosphere to produce acids. However, it can also be caused naturally by the splitting of nitrogen compounds by the energy produced by lightning strikes, or the release of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere by phenomena of volcano eruptions.

Acid Rain in Europe

The environmental impacts of acid rain: on human health, on buildings and materials, on forests, freshwaters, crops and biodiversity and on global warming have been well-documented. Less is known about the extent and economic costs of these impacts. This book describes the first major implementation of an integrated scientific and economic assessment of the consequences of acid rain. It provides an extensive data review and examines how this unique approach to assessment modelling can be can be used to calculate an acidification cost per unit of pollutant in monetary terms. Part One focuses on the methodological issues of scientific measurement of acidification, dose-response relationships and economic approaches to acidification control. Part Two looks at the environmental impacts and economic consequences of acidification. Affected environmental media and human health are investigated in separate chapters, each including both scientific and economic analyses. Part Three provides a summary of the findings and makes recommendations for further application of these types of results to policy actions.

Effect of simulated acid rain on plants
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Environmental pollution occurs due to release of harmful gases from industrial units. It results in the form of acid rain either wet or dry form. Factories, vehicles, power stations and industries burn fossil fuels and produce harmful gases, comprising sulfur dioxide, or oxides of nitrogen, which become the major course of acid rain. Acid rain sometimes falls in the form of precipitation which can be snow, rain, dew or fog. Dry deposition is absorption of particles such as polluting gases, dust particles and gaseous elements by the surface of the Earth. The pH level of acid rain may be less than 7 but when the concentration of pollutants increases in the atmosphere, it further decreases and strong acids like sulfuric and nitric acid are formed. Acid rain induces visible lesion injury on plant shoots and on other tissues. It also destroys epicuticular wax, reduces photosynthetic rate and chlorophyll contents. Acid rain in plants can considerably reduce plant height, number of leaves, fresh and dry weight contents. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of simulated acid rain on the growth performance of Wheat and Oat crops.

Acid Rain Legislation and Local Areas
70,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While a number of studies have examined the potential economic impacts of acid rain legislation, the geographical focus of such studies has largely been confined to large regions such as the state or the nation. Despite the growing recognition that the appropriate geographical focus of such studies should be at the local level,very little by way of research effort appear to have been demonstrated in this direction. Also overlooked in these studies, are the income distribution implications that are important in any acid rain reduction policy consideration.This book seeks to address these shortcomings of existing economic impact studies of acid rain legislation, by examining the employment, income, and size distribution of income impacts of legislative actions designed to reduce acid rain on small coal mining regions. The analysis as well as the study results concluded in this book will appeal to regional economic planners, enviromental economists and policy makers,and coal research institutions.

Today acid rain problem is one of serious global problem to environment in which pH of the rain water decreases cause harmful effect to nature, buildings, monuments, vegetation and human being also. This reaction is catalyzed by various metals and their oxide so it is very important to find out such compounds which inhibit this reaction in atmosphere. In our study we report that organics are best inhibitors for control the rain water acidity,(Studied Isopropyl and Isoamyl alcohols, sodium benzoate, Benzamide, aniline, Formic acid) and observed particularly alcohols having greater inhibition power compared to others and these all are control the rain water acidity and save our environment. In our study kinetics of reaction have been done by calculating rate constants, rate law, mechanism, activation energy etc in acidic medium.
