The chemistry of western Atlantic precipitation at the midAtlantic coast and on Bermuda Academic Article uri icon


  • The major ion composition of western Atlantic precipitation falling at the coast of eastern US (Lewes, Delaware) and at the Sargasso Sea (Bermuda Island) has been measured by event year round (May 1980 to April 1981) to assess the influence of the ocean on precipitation from storms that leave the North American continent and transit over the western Atlantic. Particular attention is paid to the oceanic influence on the sulfur and nitrogen precursors of 'acid rains'.-from AuthorsCollege of Marine Studies, Univ of Delaware, Newark, DE 19711, USA. English
