It was determined that major sources were non-ferrous metal smelters, coal-fired generators as well as more distributed sources such as transportation (Summers and Whelpdale 1975). Work was done on the chemistry of the atmosphere to figure out how the acidification mechanism worked. The physical behaviour of the pollutants was studied as they moved from emission to deposition point. The mechanisms of deposition were studied. All this information was assembled into models to describe the overall phenomenon (Clarke et al.

1939), is a classic, and was generalized in his further work over the next decade (Katz 1949). Plant health was the “smoking gun” in this case although there were plenty of other effects observed. The special tribunal reported its findings in 1941 in a landmark decision stating “No state has the right to use or permit the use of its territory in such a manner as to cause injury by fumes in or to the territory of another or the properties of the persons therein, when the case is of serious consequences and the injury is established by clear and convincing evidence” (Kaijser 2011).

In the 2012 Progress Report under the Canada/US Air Quality Agreement, there is a table that shows preliminary 2010 emissions from the United States and Canadian PEMA. There are NOx reductions mainly from on-road mobile sources and electric power generation. VOC reductions are primarily form on-road and nonroad mobile sources and solvent utilization. In general, over the last decade, on-road vehicle emission reduction has driven the overall decline in emissions. Particulate Matter As has already been discussed, advances in the management of air quality in Canada have been linked closely to advances in associated sciences, especially monitoring.
