  • What is leaching?

    This oxidation caused by leaching is one of the main drivers of acid mine drainage! Once leaching of iron and other previously unoxidized metals begins, it is difficult to reverse the resulting acid mine drainage (Check out this article on acid mine drainge by the BBC) Leaching may also occur high above soil, regolith, and rock, in the tree tops.

  • Acid Rain Effects

    Acid deposition adds hydrogen ions, which displace these important nutrients in a process called leaching Leaching means that the ions are washed deeper into the subsoil or washed out of the top soil If ions are leached from the soil, they are no longer available to the roots of the plants.
