- Program Description
Acid rain is an extremely complex phenomenon whose causes and effects are just starting to be fully understood. It's a form of air pollution which has been blamed for the increased acidification of some North American and European lakes, ponds and streams, resulting in the death of aquatic plants and animals. NOVA looks at some of the latest ramifications of air pollution, focusing on the problem of forest decline in Europe and North America, and explores the status of current research on acid rain.
