Picture[edit]

I think a good picture for the article would be one of a forest (and trees) damaged by the acid. You would have to find one that allows fair use though unless you have taken one yourself in such an area.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.216.14.180 (talkcontribs) 12:50, 9 February 2007

Observational Database[edit]

A large observational database of many different atmospheric constituents including radicals from a host of platforms is available. This was created as part of ESA Envisat and NASA Aura validation. It is of general use. Do you think it should be added to the article text? Dlary

Definition[edit]

The article mentions that "unpolluted" rain has a slightly acidic pH. However had, the article does not clearly define at which point we commonly speak of "acidic rain". Can someone extend the definition and say at which pH-range we can speak of acidic or acid-polluted rain? 2A02:8388:1641:8D00:BE5F:F4FF:FECD:7CB2 (talk) 08:34, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
