Two-thirds come from human sources, mostly combustion (S+ O2  SO2) of sulfur-containing coal and from oil refining and smelting of sulfide ores. SO2 in the atmosphere can be converted to sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and sulfate salts (SO42-) that return to earth as a component of acid deposition. Causes breathing problems & bronchitis. Irritating odor. All are major components of South Asian Brown Clouds.
