In this paper is shown the values obtained from the air quality in an experimental way in a zone of Havana City with strong industrial influence and motor traffic. The levels of SO2 and the Total Suspended Particles (TSP) are one-third superior in outdoor environment. While NO2, NH3 and H2S registered higher values in indoors. The concentration of SO2 and the TSP surpass in this zone the maximum admissible concentration according to the Cuban standards and the recommended criteria by the Health…

The relationship between airborne acidity and ammonia in indoor environments.
TLDR
The accumulation of NH3 indoors was found to be the primary determinant of indoor H+ and HNO3 levels, and mass balance models that included an NH3 neutralization term were found to predict indoor H+.
Health effects of acid aerosols
Earlier in this century, a number of severe episodes clearly demonstrated that air pollution can affect human health; these included documented increases in mortality and morbidity. Although health
