  • Sulphur dioxide and particulate pollution have been occurring over a wide area in the Sudbury region, Ontario, as a result of massive smelting operations. In excess of 3Z million short tons of SO2 were released into the atmosphere in the area in 1972, and this pollutant is now discharged through a 1250-foot smokestack. The particulate contribution is an additional complicating and phytotoxic factor. For example, in 1971, 192 tons of nickel, 145 tons of copper, 1130 tons of iron and 4.5 tons of… CONTINUE READING
