Acid rain is linked to both natural and man-made sources. 

  1. When a thunderstorm produces lightning,  nitrogen oxides are formed through the extreme heating of air.
  2. Sulphurous gases are discharged from erupted volcanoes and rotting vegetation.
  3. Man-made sources of acid rain include the burning of any fuel that contains sulphur and nitrogen compounds, including public utilities, industrial broilers, motor vehicles, and chemical plants.
