Rain water is the purest form of water until it is contaminated by the atmospheric pollution. It is the source to surface and ground water recharge. If ground water recharge takes place with uncontaminated rain water, it remains fit for drinking purposes. On the other hand rain water is an efficient pathway for removing the gases and particles from the atmosphere, which determines the composition of rain water. The composition of rain water varies from site to site and region to region due to… Expand

INVESTIGATION OF SELF-NEUTRALIZATION OF ACID RAIN-INDUCED ACIDIFYING MATERIALS IN Bacopa monnieri
All living things are affected directly or indirectly by Acid Rain (AR). Biological effects of acid deposition due to AR on plants are numerous and complex. Usually, AR induced acidity is observed inExpand
Responses of soil N-fixing bacteria communities to invasive plant species under different types of simulated acid deposition
TLDR
It can be expected a change in the structure of SNB after A. retroflexus invasion under acid deposition rich in sulfuric acid, which may create a plant soil feedback favoring future A. Retroflexus invasions. Expand

Assessment of airborne heavy metal pollution by aboveground plant parts.
TLDR
In pine samples from the polluted sites the ratio of concentrations between bark and wood was high for Al, Ba, Cu and Fe, whereas no differences were found in samples from a unpolluted area and in the oleander species the ratio between leaves and wood concentration allowed to distinguish between control and polluted sites.
