acid rain

Glossary “acid rain” Definition:
Corrosive rain formed when sulfur (S) emissions from motor vehicles and industrial plants combine with hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O) in the atmosphere to form sulfuric acid. The mixture of these chemicals with water produces an acid solution that is found in rain. Not only is it corrosive to anything it may come into contact with, it also raises the acidity of lakes and ponds, often to the point that fish and other aquatic life cannot survive.
