    G.D. Thurston, in International Encyclopedia of Public Health, Sulfur Oxides. Sulfur oxides are present in the ambient air primarily as primary gaseous SO 2 or secondary particulate sulfate (SO 4 2−).SO 2 is formed when fossil fuels containing sulfur (mainly coal or oil) are burned, and by metal smelting and other industrial processes. The highest monitored concentrations of SO 2 are. transformedin the air by chemical reactions. How Is Particulate Matter Regulated? The National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) regulates nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead and particulates. Particle pollution is regulated under two categories of particles based on established information on differ­.

    Nitrogen oxides-Formed when combustion takes place in the air like in automobile engines Carbon oxides-Produced when organic materials are incompletely burned, usually in automobiles Particulate matter- Minute pieces of solid (and sometimes liquid) materials suspended in air, from combustion of wood, manure, or road dust etc. To assist states in developing air quality standards, this book offers a review of literature related to atmospheric particulates and the development of criteria for air quality. It not only summarizes the current scientific knowledge of particulate air pollution, but points up the major deficiencies in that knowledge and the need for further research.

    The six criteria pollutants addressed in the NAAQS are Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Lead, Ozone (or smog), Particulate Matter, and Sulfur Dioxide. If the levels of these pollutants are higher than what is considered acceptable by EPA, then the area in which the level is too high is called a nonattainment area. standards, or criteria, for six pollutants determined to be potentially harmful to human health and welfare. The USEPA considers the presence of the following six criteria pollutants to be indicators of air quality: Ozone (O 3); Carbon monoxide (CO); Nitrogen dioxide (NO 2); Particulate matter (PM 10 and PM ); 1 Sulfur dioxide (SO 2); and.

PREFACE This document is a revision of External Review Draft No. 1, Air Quality Criteria for Particulate Matter and Sulfur Oxides, released in April Comments received during a public comment period from Ap through Jand recommendations made by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee in August have been.

Particulate matter and sulfur oxides are two of six major air pollutants regulated by National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) under the U.S. Clean Air Act. As mandated by the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must periodically review the scientific bases (or “criteria”) for the various NAAQS by assessing newly available scientific information on a given.

PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF SULFUR OXIDES AND PARTICULATE MATTER AND ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES FOR THEIR MEASUREMENT INTRODUCTION The Air Quality Criteria documents for Sulfur Oxides and Particulate Matter provided a reasonably thorough review of measurement techniques at the date of their publication.

The Clean Air Act requires EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) National Ambient Air Quality StandardsNational Ambient Air Quality Standards established by EPA for six "criteria" pollutants in outdoor air. NAAQS are currently set for carbon monoxide, lead, ground-level ozone, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide.

The new information included in this latest update of the Air quality guidelines relate to four common air pollutants: particulate matter (PM), ozone (O), nitrogen dioxide (NO 2) and sulfur dioxide (SO 2).

The second addendum to the Air Quality Criteria for Particulate Matter and Sulfur Oxides evaluates and assesses new scientific information that have emerged since and their implications for derivation of health-related criteria for particulate matter and sulfur oxides NAAQS.

The agency has set national air quality standards for six principal or criteria air pollutants, which include nitrogen dioxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, and lead. Four of these pollutants—NO 2, SO 2, CO, and lead—result primarily from direct emissions from a variety of sources.

The six criteria air pollutants (CAP), or criteria pollutants, for which limits are set in the NAAQS are ozone (O 3), atmospheric particulate matter, lead, carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur oxides (SO x), and nitrogen oxides (NO x).

These are typically emitted from many sources in industry, mining, transportation, electricity generation and agriculture. These pollutants are: 1) carbon monoxide (CO), 2) lead (Pb), 3) nitrogen dioxide (NO 2), 4) ozone (O 3), 5) particulate matter (this is broken down into particulate matter less than 10 microns in diameter (PM 10) and particulate matter less than microns in diameter (PM )) and 6) sulfur dioxide (SO 2).

The WHO air quality guidelines offer guidance on reducing the effects on health of air pollution. This book presents revised guideline values for the four most common air pollutants - particulate matter, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide - based on a recent review of the accumulated scientific evidence.
