The study, published today in Environmental Science and Technology, finds that aluminum concentrations a telltale sign of acid rain damage have declined while pH has increased in the upper soil layers across nearly all sites. For example, if the impairment is characterized by the loss of brook trout, the cause is more likely to be a stressor to which that species is sensitive e. These air pollutants are transported through soil to surface waters, resulting in a range of complex and adverse ecosystem effects.the breakdown of rocks and minerals in soil.
Continued shift in species composition and decline in species richness of plankton, periphyton and benthic invertebrate communities; decreases in total abundance and biomass of benthic invertebrates and zooplankton may occur in some waters. At pH Effects of acidic deposition on forest ecosystems in the northeastern United States, most fish eggs cannot hatch.
53 Downloads Abstract Acid deposition can alter soil properties and thus affect forest productivity and the quality of the water in associated aquatic ecosystems. Average annual basal area growth during the decade prior to sampling was lower for trees in stands with low foliar Ca and high foliar Al. These pollutants included acidic deposition, heavy metal particulates, sulphur dioxide, ozone, nitrogen oxides, acid fogs and mixtures of these.
Bruce; Fernandez, Ivan; White, Alan S. Bruce; Fernandez, Ivan; White, Alan S. Across all 27 sites in the study, the uppermost soil layers are showing a strong recovery response, with aluminum levels dropping and soil pH increasing.
; Boggs, Johnny; Aber, John D. Possible decreases in condition include gill hyperplasia, gill and fin erosion, lesions and skin damage increasing susceptibility to fungal infections and increased olfactory damage; possible changes in behavior include lethargy. An impassioned controversy on a supposedly large scale forest health problem was then in full swing in Central Europe.

Leaching of naturally alkaline rocks and soils is exacerbated by physical disturbances such as tilling, mining and construction.
