Acid rain is any form of precipitation with high levels of nitric and sulfuric acids, also referred to as “atmospheric pollution.” Acid rain occurs when sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are emitted into the atmosphere, where they undergo chemical transformations and are absorbed by water droplets in clouds. Acid rain can also occur in other forms of acidic precipitation, such as snow, fog and tiny bits of material deposits that settle to Earth.
How do hurricanes form? With a spiral cut piece of paper and a lamp, you can model how hot air rises off the ocean to create a hurricane over warm water. This is a great way for kids to learn about extreme weather. || Gift of Curiosity
