Total Sulfur monitoring
Total Sulfur includes all the gases described within total reduced sulfur, as well as sulfur dioxide as these compounds are oxidised forms of sulfur. Exposure to sulfur dioxides, and other reduced sulfur based compounds can cause many harmful effects in humans including headaches, general discomfort up to death in large doses. Those with impaired heart or lung function and asthmatics are at increased risk. Sulfur dioxide, one of the major pollutants, is absorbed by soils and plants and captured within and below clouds and in certain circumstances can increase the acidity of rain.
