The aim of this paper is to discuss a possible way for the transformation of sulphur gases to particulate sulphate in the winter months. It is suggested, on the basis of observational data, that this transformation is probably taking place on the surface of aerosol particles or in atmospheric liquid water. Considering earlier summer results, according to which indirect photochemical processes play an important part in the formation of atmospheric sulphate particles, it is concluded that in the air, many mechanisms are responsible for the formation of particulate sulphate.
