Acid deposition, more commonly known as acid rain, occurs when emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) react in the atmosphere with water, oxygen, and oxidants to form various acidic compounds.

Prevailing winds transport the acidic compounds hundreds of miles, often across state and national borders. These acidic compounds then fall to earth in either a wet form (rain, snow Cited by: This research has been funded as part of the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program by the Environmental Protection Agency under Related Services Agreement with the U.S.
