Caption

Eroded statue. Stone statue that has been damaged by acid rain. Acid rain is caused by the reaction in the atmosphere between water droplets and pollutant gases, notably sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen, which are mainly produced by the burning of fossil fuels. Such reactions lead to the production of sulphuric acid and nitric acid which are brought down in the rain, increasing the acidity of soil and water in rivers and lakes. Statues are eroded by the acid depositions and many of Europe's older buildings are decaying at an accelerated rate.
