      Abstract. Sulfur dioxide (SO 2) is an atmospheric pollutant that is moderately persistent in the atmosphere and highly water applied as a pesticide, SO 2 may be transported, deposited, or transformed in various chemical reactions. SO 2 participates in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle, which involves complex reactions of sulfur-containing compounds Cited by: 4.

The Clean Air Act, which was last amended inrequires EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards (40 CFR part 50) for pollutants considered harmful to public Review of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for sulfur oxides book and the Clean Air Act identifies two types of national ambient air quality standards.

Primary standards provide public health protection, including protecting the health of. On April 6,based on a review of the full body of scientific evidence, EPA issued a decision to retain the current national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for oxides of nitrogen (NOx).

The EPA has concluded that the current NAAQS protect the public health, including the at-risk populations of older adults, children and people with.

This review focuses on evaluation of the protection provided by secondary standards for oxides of nitrogen and sulfur for two general types of effects: (1) direct effects on vegetation associated with exposure to gaseous oxides of nitrogen and sulfur in the ambient air, which are the effects that the current NO 2 and SO 2 secondary standards.

Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances are introduced into Earth's s of air pollution include gases (such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological may cause diseases, allergies and even death to.

The possibility of establishing standards for indoor air quality is under consideration, because its importance for protecting human health is recognized as a major national environmental issue. The ever-increasing cost of energy has heightened the need for considering such standards, inasmuch as a cost-effective method of reducing energy use in buildings is to reduce.
