Sulphur Dioxide 8/2003 Please Introduction Sulphur dioxide is an acid gas that
is commonly produced by power plants, especially coal plants. Sulphur dioxide has become a recognized public health problem because it can impact individuals with respiratory problems and can cause
a variety of irritations in individuals in close proximity to the source. Further, sulphur dioxide can also negatively impact the environment, causing problems for vegetation and even other animals.
In studying the issue of sulphur dioxide emissions, it is necessary to consider the use of a specific research methodology, and then outline the value of understanding the health
problems caused by sulphur dioxide and the efforts for control that have been put into place in recent years. Each of these elements helps to provide a beneficial view of
the problem with an aim at future prevention. Identify Methodology The research method employed in this study is based on a qualitative design which provides a comparative view of
the current literature (Greenhalgh, 2002). This type of methodology is most commonly referred to as descriptive and is non-experimental in its base. Essentially, this type of qualitative research provides
a comparative analysis of the current literature rather than employing other instruments, including a research questionnaire or the assessment of a subject population. The basis for this type
of non-experimental research study is the outlining of theories and models which provide a structure through which assertions made in the current literature can be applied. Wright (1996) argued
that "number counting and statistical techniques are not the central issues" (p. 64). This is especially true when applying perspectives for structural change to aviation industry environment and for
