Acid precipitation is created from sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides which undergoes chemical reformation.They are transformed into sulphuric and nitric acid which can negatively effect the environment.Heavy winds can carry these dangerous substances over a large range of land.Severe enviornmental damage can occur.
Be sure to check out our impending Environmental Tips post which will provide details on what can be done to reduce the generation of acid precipitation.
See you next month for more Science!

It was one year ago today when I decided to open up this weblog.Its hard to believe that one year has already gone by.This community means so much to me and it has been a privileged journey.I have truly enjoyed creating content and keeping things up to date.I would have never imagined that the site would be as large as it is today .
