Rainfall pH in Tombstone, Arizona, 1968-81



Rainfall pH in Tombstone, Arizona, 1968-81



Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest 16: 85-93



Rainfall pH was measured at the Tombstone, Arizona, USDA-ARS station from 1968-81. The summer rains were more acidic than the winter rains. The pH of the summer rains was about pH 5, the winter rains about pH 6, with considerable variation. The summer rain pH increased gradually over this period, coinciding with a general decrease of sulfur emissions from the nearest copper smelter at Douglas, Arizona, and from all smelters in Arizona. The acidity was very roughly related to sulfur content.
