It has long been known that sulphur dioxide contaminated air within cities and industrial zones is hazardous because of direct damage to humans and vegetation. It also causes corrosion and erosion. Recently a different aspect of sulphur pollution is being observed: acidification of precipitation. With projects such as the OK Refinery at Brofjorden and the thermal power station near Stromstad being planned, it may be of interest to have a closer look at the sulphur circulation in the atmosphere. The known and suspected environmental impacts in relation to guidelines for air quality standards is also considered.
