The composition of precipitation in China is highly influenced by fossil fuel combustion and agricultural and cultural practices. Compared to the eastern United States, precipitation in China generally has higher concentrations of sulfate, ammonium, and calcium. Wet deposition rates of sulfur in China are 7 to 130 times higher than those in a remote area in the Southern Hemisphere. In many areas of the world, significant ecological changes have occurred in ecosystems that have acid deposition… 
On the origin and the trend of acid precipitation in China
The acidity of the precipitation in China as well as the area affected by acidic raimfalls have increased in the years, along with the rapid economic growth in china. Field observations indicate that

Atmospheric Wet Depositions in Tropical America
The chemical composition of wet depositions at a “natural” regional scale and in local polluted areas in tropical America is reviewed. The available data indicate that at large regional scales,
Acid Rain and Below-Cloud Scavenging in South-Western China
Abstract Major urban areas in south-western China exhibit unique air pollutionproblems due to increasing use of high sulphur-content fuels in an environmentof unfavourable topography and climate.
