Acid Rain and Our Nationís Capital: A Guide to Effects on Buildings and Monuments
Elaine McGee (au)
When polluted air mixes with rain, snow, and fog, acid precipitation forms. This acidity has caused people to worry about the environment. Another concern is its effect on historic buildings and monuments. This booklet focuses on acid rain and its impact on our Nationís capital. In 1997, rain in Washington, D.C., had an average acidity of 4.2, about as acid as a carbonated drink and more than 10 times as acid as clean, unpolluted rain. This booklet defines acid rain, explains what effects it has on marble and limestone buildings, and shows, on a walking tour, some of the places in our Nationís capital where you can see the impact of acid precipitation. Includes a Glossary of Geologic and Architectural Terms and a map. Color photos.
