One of the primary concerns is the effect of air pollutants on aesthetics, economic viability, safety, personal discomfort, and health. The aesthetic effects include loss of clarity of the atmosphere due to the presence of particulates and/or photochemical smog and the presence of objectionable odors primarily associated with gases such as ammonia and sulphur-containing mercaptans. Economic losses attributable to air pollution include the soiling effect of particulates, damage to vegetation and crops resulting from exposure to excessive concentrations of gases such as sulphur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, and ozone; damage to livestock associated with exposure to fluorine; and deterioration of exposed materials by a variety of air pollutants.
