Rain and Lake Waters in taiwan:Composition and Acidity

Abstract

Ten automatic samplers were used to collect dry deposits and rain water in the highly industrialized region of southwestern Taiwan between December 1985 and July 1989. During the dry season, rain water sometimes appeared basic because it contained a large amount of basic minerals such as calcium carbonate released by several local cement plan . During e wet season, however, the rain became increasingly acidic with its lowest pH value of 3.823.
