Rain pH Estimation Based on the Particulate Matter Pollutants and Wet Deposition Study
Contribution to Books
Handbook of Environment and Waste Management - Volume 3: Acid Rain and Greenhouse Gas Pollution Control
This chapter highlights the importance of deposition in the removal of pollutants from the atmosphere and at the same time its role in the addition of these pollutants back to lithosphere and hydrosphere. Wet deposition in terms of rain acidity, global rain pH trend and its estimation are detailed. Processes involved in scavenging of pollutants and their role in deciding chemical nature of rain are discussed.
