Immediately a climatological factor has to be incorporated into acid rain - if hilly areas of high rainfall, mountainous and/ormorenortherly areas of high snowfall, or areas susceptible to extensive fogs and mists coincide with calcium-poor geology, then acidification results. However, according to NERC (19841, dry deposition accounts for two-thirds of the total acid load in the UK, so the formerly simple acid rain theory is not quite as simple as earlier theorists believed. Other causes of acidification in freshwaters are upland coniferous afforestation (Nillson et al.

Their primary use was in electrical transformers and condensers, but also in paints, printing inks and oils. About 2 million tons have been produced worldwide. It is estimated that 30% of this is cycling through the biota, mainly freshwater. Elevated levels in fish, like eels, with a high fat content present a problem for predators such as herons, otters and humans, where the accumulation will continue.
