Forty-seven minerals were identified. H 2 0), anhydrite, thenardite (Na 2S0 4 ) and langbeinite (K2Mg2(S04)3). There were also five minerals containing copper and one containing lead, but none containing manganese. From a literature search there were reports of 51 other volcanic minerals not found in South America during this investigation. Five more copper minerals and 4 more lead minerals were reported. In addition, there were two minerals each containing manganese and arsenic and one mineral with either tin or zinc.

Yet, the similarity of enrichment factors for the North Atlantic and South Polar airs suggests a natural source for these metals as opposed to an anthropogenic one. Duce et al. D. , 1975). 4 Cr 11. Zn 110. Cu 120 Pb 2200. 9 69. 93. 2500. Sb 2300. 1300. Se 10000. 18000. originate in the Northern Hemisphere. Interhemispheric mixing takes place in times of the order of six months to a year. Yet the residence times of these substances in the atmosphere is of the order of weeks to a month. There clearly is inadequate time for the transport of these metals from the northern hemisphere to the south pole.
