Question ID: 592475
I need information about acid rains - sources; mechanisms of
generation; migration; mechanisms of influence and consequences to
environment (plants, animals, humans etc); transformation of its toxic
substances (if any exist) in environment; ways to measure, control and
prevent this phenomenon.

What I already know about this is general information from Wikipedia
( I need more specific and thorough scientific (not
oversimplified) information and statistics.

Links to publicly available scientific articles in the web on these
themes will be perfect. It will be very nice if you'll provide links
to articles in Russian because it's my native language, but English is
perfectly acceptable too.

I need answer to my question in 2 days maximum, sooner the better.

Clarification of Question by skoptelov-ga on 13 Nov 2005 09:24 PST
Just to make it clear - I do need links to articles or books so I'll
be able to do my research myself and I don't need thorough explanation
by researcher himself (I understand that $60 isn't much).

After I got your Clarification, I resisted the urge to write out
information on Acid Rain, and find you the references. It is not often
that we only retrieve the links and book references.

Here is a list of books, magazine articles and web references on the
subject of Acid Rain.

This is a form and instruction page with guidelines on Acid Rain Study
requirments. There are several "labs" on the Internet, but this one
drew my attention because of the completeness of the project

This is another good study guide with a great deal of good information
in it (be sure to check out the part reguarding one solution as
