  • Hey Lydia, the trees in this region look like they have been growing well, don't you think?
  • Definitely. The research in this region looks to have payed off! Let's go to another region.
  • It looks as if this aquatic life area near Lake Champlain has been wiped out.... there are no fish!
  • We previously researched this area, and it shows that the problem is an increase of acid rain, sadly. We can talk to the other scientists to find how to help this area get back to normal.
  • In this region, things are so different.
  • Yes, that it because we are at a higher elevation, and acidic fog up here drains the trees from its nutrients and minerals that help them grow...sadly, these trees do not get enough of them, resulting in their dead leaves.
  • I hope that in the future, we can all make an effect to reduce acid rain so we can preserve the beautiful environment we live in!
  • I agree! Research in the Adirondacks is what can help us overcome the acid precipitation problems we face here!
