In all but four of the areas listed, which represents where over 75% of all Americans live and work, the air was classified "very unhealthful" at least once in each of the years of the sampling period. The contribution of incineration to these figures is relatively small, with automobile emissions the largest single cause of bad air quality in most of these areas. References and Bibliography 1.

Changes slowly to 503 or if dissolved oxidizes slowly to S04-and can form sulfurous acid, H 2 S03 • S03 Sulfur Trioxide Readily dissolves in water to form sulfuric acid, H 2S04. Sulfuric acid may be presentin the air as an aerosol. It reacts with other pollutants to form sulfate aerosols. Gaseous Pollutants 51 Another sulfur family pollutant is hydrogen sulfide, H 2S. This is an extremely odorous compound, detectable in the amounts of parts per billion in the atmosphere. Hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans, a family of organic sulfur compounds, are detectable by odor long before their concentration can become a danger to health.
