This review surveys current literature on the measurement of pH and acidity of atmospheric precipitation. Current practices for calibrating pH-measuring systems for atmospheric precipitation applications are reviewed and possible sources of error are discussed. Determinations of acidity are grouped in accordance with the type of end-point selected for titration: color indicator, fixed pH, Gran plot, and closed loop.
