The tropospheric chemistry of sulphur dioxide (SO(2)) and nitrogen oxides (NO and NO(2)) are reviewed in detail, together with that of other relevant species, particularly organics. Emissions of SO(2) and NOx resulting from the combustion of fossil fuels are recognised as responsible both for local pollution and for significant damage to the global environment. Although both types of emission end with the formation of the relevant acid or its salts, the intermediate path of the two pollutants, and their impact on the chemistry of other trace gases, are quite different and are, therefore, treated separately.
