  • Since the early 1960s, acid rain has affected surface waters in regions with soils low in carbonates. The acidification of whole lake districts resulted from industrial emissions distributed through the atmosphere on a regional scale. A large body of literature exists about this acidification of surface waters by acid rain, its ecological consequences, and countermeasures to restore landscape and waters (e.g., Drablos and Tollan 1980; Fleischer 1993; Steinberg and Wright 1994; Stumm 1995).
