|Does anyone know whether the effect of volcanic emissions on acid rain is well understood? Volcanoes usually emit sulfates in a large amount, but I want to know if the relationship between the type of volcano and the precipitation pattern is well understood.|
I don't think the 'S' in LSD, stands for sulfates... But those preaching such nonsense must be on something.

Rain is naturally acidic. As runoff flows down rivers to the sea, it becomes alkaline.
As far as damage to vegetation from 'acid rain' is concerned, be aware the Hawaii is a chain of active volcanoes, and they still erupt from time to time, yet the islands are filled with lush vegetation (at least where the molten lava didn't flow over it!).
The Pacific Northwest also has a chain of active volcanoes (remember Mt. St Helens?) that erupt from time to time (the last one was from Mt Baker venting steam and ash, which occurred last winter). Yet it too has thick forests and plenty of vegetation.
Besides, what you are going to do about it? Shut down the volcanoes??

To date, with the exception of solar radiation being blocked, little is understood about the emissions from a volcano. And if someone likes science, they know it takes time to understand such things.

|Apparently, we have 7 days, until a super-volcano event. Savior Buddha is pissed we aren't sending cryptocurrency fast enough (or at all). I think somebody here, might have wrote something offensive... (not-me). Hope he picks the west-coast. Mount St. Helens made a mess in several states, and Canada.|
It'd be the material in the mantle that helps to determine acid rain. This link should help. Kind of wondered why some have a significant pyroclastic flow and others don't. https://www.whoi.edu/fileserver.do?id=66143&pt=2&p=44371
|Many volcanos emit sulfur. The sulfur reacts with air and water to create sulfuric acid. When this rains down onto the earth it reacts with carbonate rock to form gypsum and carbon dioxide.|
