Description: Since January 1972, chemical analysis of daily precipitation samples from about 20 background stations in Norway has been carried out on a routine basis. Air monitoring is carried out at six stations. The chemical analysis programme is: sulphate, pH and acidity in precipitation, sulphates and sulphur dioxide in air. In addition, more detailed chemical analysis of aerosol and precipitation has been carried out at selected stations. Some results for the measurement period 1972-1974 are presented. Comparison of air and precipitation concentrations of sulphur compounds show that the precipitation scavenging efficiency is very high under the conditions in Southern Norway.
