Abstract

Massaya volcano in west-central Nicaragua has been emitting large amounts of SO2 and HCl since 1979; discharges of HCl exceed 1400 metric tons per day. Contact of the rain with ubiquitous Malanthora and Lantana vegetation produces at least a 100-fold drop in acidity between bulk deposition and throughfall. In the soil, plant root systems release acid cations allowing plant uptake of base cations, especially K. -from Author
