Waterborne transport may influence air quality not only in harbour areas, but also through acidification impacts in larger areas. Ships often use oil with a high sulphur content resulting in emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2). When nitrogen oxides produced by ships are also taken into account, it has been calculated that international shipping traffic accounts for 10–15 per cent of total deposition over Western Europe.

VOCs emissions are caused not only from tailpipe exhaust, but also by evaporation of gasoline during vehicle refuelling, operation and parking. Small particles, with an aerodynamic diameter less than 10 micrometres, are likely responsible for most of the adverse effects of particulate matter because of their ability to enter the human respiratory system during inhalation. That is why air quality standards use their concentrations as indicators for particulate matter. 5 micrometers in diameter – are the most dangerous, since particles of this size are transported deep into the lungs.
