Oxygen isotope compositions of secondary sulphates provide a potentially powerful tool for elucidating mechanisms of sulphur oxidation. Such studies should reveal the consequences of various anthropogenic sulphur contributions to the environment, including gaseous emissions, aqueous solutions and elemental sulphur dust. At mining sites, metal sulphides may be oxidized in situ, giving rise to acid mine waters. The environment can receive these compounds from natural sources also, for example… CONTINUE READING
