    Air pollution along the border between Norway and Russia has been recorded since 1974 in SOr-Varanger county (Norway) and since 1985 in Murmansk county (Russia).

    A more extensive collaboration on the environmental pollution problems in the border region was started in 1988 with the establishment of a joint pollution commission.

    Sulphur dioxide seems to be the most important pollutant causing both environmental damage and adverse health effects.

    The recommended highest 6-month mean acceptable value for Norway of 40-60 mug/m3 was exceeded for two Russian and one Norwegian station during the winter of 1990/91.

    About 5% of hourly means exceeded 350 mug/m3 at the most polluted Norwegian station.
