The Effects of Acid Rain on the Visible Light Absorption of Stained Glass

Abstract: The effect of acid rain on stained glass windows is felt by many churches and other historic buildings worldwide, especially in Europe. As a result, the relationship between the traditionally dark interiors of these European churches and the acid rain that corrodes the stained glass was studied. Specifically, the effects of specific pHs of acid rain on the visible light absorption of stained glass over time were examined. In order to study this topic, […]
