AbstractThe rain falling upon a small drainage basin in the New Territories of Hong Kong has been shown to be acidic. However, water samples collected under vegetation reveal throughfall to be less acidic than rainfall. Water collected from a soil pipe is even less acidic than throughfall. Streamflow has a median pH of 6.7, very close to neutral. The essentially neutral pH of the streamflow confirms that the vegetation and soils of the basin act to neutralise the acid rain input. Data from this basin indicate that acid rain need not necessarily result in the acidification of surface waters. -from Author
