dry deposition
a form of acid deposition (the addition of acidic material to the ground or water, usually from sulphur and nitrogen compounds emitted by factories and deposited far from this source, resulting from particle fallout or acidic gases. Wet deposition is also called acid rain, q.v., and is the result of rain, snow or fog)
