Pure sulfuric acid is not encountered naturally on Earth in anhydrous form, due to its great affinity for water. Dilute sulfuric acid is a constituent of acid rain, which is formed by atmospheric oxidation of sulfur dioxide in the presence of water . Sulfur dioxide is the main byproduct produced when sulfur-containing fuels such as coal or oil are burned.Sulfuric acid is formed naturally by the oxidation of sulfide minerals, such as iron sulfide. The resulting water can be highly acidic and is called acid mine drainage (AMD) or acid rock drainage (ARD).Pure sulfuric acid is not encountered naturally on Earth in anhydrous form, due to its great affinity for water.Sulfuric acid is formed naturally by the oxidation of sulfide minerals, such as iron sulfide.
