Chronic and episodic acidification of streams along the Appalachian Trail corridor, eastern United States Acidic atmospheric deposition has adversely affected aquatic ecosystems globally. As emissions and deposition of sulfur (S) and nitrogen (N) have declined in recent decades across North America and Europe, ecosystem recovery is evident in.

    In , the United States released approximately 90 billion pounds of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the air. Rain and snow that falls in the Eastern U.S. typically has a much lower pH than precipitation in other parts of the country. Despite the potential use of δ15N as a tracer of NOx source contributions, prior documentation of δ15N of various NOx emission sources is exceedingly limited. This manuscript presents the first measurements of the nitrogen isotopic composition of NOx (δ15N-NOx) emitted from coal-fired power plants in the U.S. at typical operating conditions with and without the presence of .

Acid rain has become a major environmental concern, the current extent of which is illustrated in this paper. Maps of both pH and H+ deposition in precipitation have been developed for the continental United States by analyzing laboratory pH data from nine precipitation chemistry networks and two single stations spread across the continental United States Cited by: Acidic Deposition in the Northeastern United States: Sources and Inputs, Ecosystem Effects, and Management Strategies Chapter (PDF Available) in BioScience 51(3) January with Reads.

Concentrations of sulfate (SO) and free hydrogen ions (H+) in precipitation decreased from 10% to 25% over a large area of the Eastern United States from through as compared to the previous year (−) reference period. These decreases were unprecedented in magnitude and spatial extent.

An alternative hypothesis that lake acidification has been caused much less by acid deposition than by changes in land use, notably regrowth of forests after cutting, was proposed by Rosenqvist ()in Norway Rosenqvist ()and by Krug and Frink ()in the United by: high acid deposition.

Total annual sulfur deposition on the Monongahela National Forest is the late s ranged from 19 kg/ha at the lower elevations, to 26 kg/ha at high elevations (Adams et al. Few areas of the United States showed higher sulfur deposition than was found on the Forest.
