Sulfur Profiles of the Twentieth Century in Peat Bogs of the Swiss Midlands Measured by ICP-OES and by IC
The S concentrations vary between 1–5 g/kg of dry sample mass. The comparison with the estimated total sulfur emissions for Switzerland from the BUWAL shows an excellent correlation with two maximal values around the years 1960 and 1980, respectively. The fact that the same deposited amount of pollutant is determined in the two peat bogs situated 50 km apart indicates that the measured signals are not controlled by local sources.
