Transcript of Acid Rain and the Impact on Ecosystems

Casiday, R and Frey, R. (1998). Retrieved April 10, 2010 from http://www.chemistry.wustl.edu/~edudev/LabTutorials/water/Freshwater/acidrain.html Department of Chemistry. (n.d.). Retrieved April 10, 2010 from http://www.chemistry.wustl.edu Chemical Equation SO2 SO3 H2SO4 O2 H2O Sulfur Dioxide which mixes with Oxygen to make Sulfur Trioside. That then mixes with water to make acis rain. If too much Sulfur and Oxygen get into oceans, lakes, rivers, and ponds aquatic animals will start to die off. If too many fish die off then other animals that live on the fish population will die, then other animals that live on those populations will start to die off and at some point the human population will statrt to suffer, also. It's a never ending chain. Acid Rain and impact on ecosystems What effect does acid rain have on aquatic ecosystems? This diagram tells what level of ph each species of water animals can survive at. This shows how the levels of acid rain have risen throughout the years. This describes acid rain in the making. Fish before acid rain are colorful in their natural habitats. Fish after acid rain turn different colors of brown as they wash up on the shores Acid rain is made up of Sulfur and Oxygen. These sound like they are good, but too much of one thing can kill anything. Reactants:
Sulfur and Oxygen
Hydrogen, Sulfur and Oxygen The higher the ph, the more the fish suffer. These numbers were found in 1994, and the numbers have been climbing quickly over the years.
