Chemicals that eased one environmental problem may worsen another
Chemicals that helped solve a global environmental crisis in the 1990s - the hole in Earth's protective ozone layer - may be making another problem - acid rain - worse, scientists are reporting. View News Article (2010-03-04)

Improving China's acid rain control strategy
Scientists are reporting the first evidence that China's sharp focus on reducing widespread damage to soil by acid rain by restricting sulfur dioxide air pollution may have an unexpected consequence: Gains from that pollution control program will be largely offset by increases in nitrogen emissions, which the country's current policy largely overlooks. View News Article (2009-10-15)

Recovery from acid rain 'much slower than expected'
Acid rain was one of the world's worst pollution problems of the 1970s and 1980s, affecting large areas of upland Britain, as well as Europe and North America. View News Article (2007-09-28)

pHlight of the mayfly
Ecologists at Cardiff University are using genetic techniques alongside classical ecology to help explain why Welsh streams are not recovering from the biological damage done by acid rain. Speaking at the British Ecological Society’s Winter Meeting, to be held at the University of Warwick on 18–20 December 2001, Ceri Williams will explain how genetically analysing mayflies is helping...

Long-term study shows acid pollution in rain decreased with emissions
Emissions regulations do have an environmental impact, according to a long-term study of acidic rainfall by researchers at the University of Illinois. View News Article (2011-11-17)

Value-added sulfur scrubbing
Power plants that burn fossil fuels remain the main source of electricity generation across the globe. Modern power plants have scrubbers to remove sulfur compounds from their flue gases, which has helped reduce the problem of acid rain. View News Article (2010-10-22)

British Ecological Society Winter Meeting
Press Invitation You are invited to the UK's premier ecological event, the British Ecological Society's Winter Meeting, being held at the University of Warwick on 18-20 December 2001. Thousands of ecologists from the throughout the world will be attending the meeting, which includes more than 300 papers and 100 posters, as well as the presentation of the Marsh award for conservation and the...

Plants' management of nutrient suggests environmental remedies
A new understanding of how plants manage their internal calcium levels could potentially lead to genetically engineering plants to avoid damage from acid rain, which robs soil of much of its calcium. View News Article (2007-03-09)

Got calcium? Mineral key to restoring acid-damaged forests
Calcium can do much more than strengthen bones. The mineral is a critical nutrient for healthy tree growth, and new research shows that adding it to the soil helps reverse the decades-long decline of forests ailing from the effects of acid rain. View News Article (2013-09-19)

On Wikipedia, politically controversial science topics vulnerable to information sabotage
Wikipedia reigns. It's the world's most popular online encyclopedia, the sixth most visited website in America, and a research source most U.S. students rely on. But, according to a paper published today in the journal PLOS ONE, Wikipedia entries on politically controversial scientific topics can be unreliable due to information sabotage.  View News Article (2015-08-17)
