An analysis about Acid Rain


    Acid Rain in Canada

According to Government of Canada website more than half of Canada consists of susceptible hard rock (i.e., granite) areas that cannot neutralize the effects of acid deposition. Lakes and soils found in areas of the Canadian Shield in northeastern Alberta, northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and parts of western British Columbia are as defenseless to acid rain as those in eastern Canada. Generally, acid rain produced from the emission of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides from human activities, mostly the combustion of fossil fuels.
