Abstract

Exact knowledge of the chemical composition of the atmosphere is very important, since many of the physical parameters of the air, even the climate of our planet, depend upon it to a greater and greater extent. Trace elements play an essential part in the regularization of atmospheric variations on a short-term basis, since their concentration, except that of certain rare gases, is very variable in time and space. The study of these elements is particularly important in our day and age, since man, by his activities, has become capable, without meaning to, of altering the atmospheric cycle of these elements. Thus world pollution may even change the current climate of the earth. The purpose of this article is to discuss the anthropogenic effects of trace elements on the atmospheric cycle, particularly those (composed of sulphur and nitrogen compounds) which can form aerosol particles in the air. The atmospheric balance of these compounds is illustrated by their cycle above Europe. Finally, the possible effect of anthropogenic sulphates and nitrates on the climate is briefly discussed.
