Acid rain is rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, i.e. elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). It can have harmful effects on plants,aquatic animals, and infrastructure through the process of wet deposition. Acid of ammonium, carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur which react with the water molecules in the atmosphere to produce acids.Governments have made efforts since the 1970s to reduce the production of sulfuric oxides into the Earth's atmosphere with no results. However, it can also be caused naturally by the splitting of nitrogen compounds by the energy produced by lightning strikes, or the release of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere by volcano eruptions.
