Sulfur Dioxide in Geothermal Waters and Gases

Methods were developed for stabilizing S02 in water and gas samples.The pararosaniline colorimetric method, and a gas chromatographic method using a flame photometric detector specific for sulfur gases were used to assay S02. Assays were also performed for sulfide, elemental sulfur and sulfate. A large number of acidic, neutral, and alkaline springs in Yellowstone National Park were sampled: SO2 was found in small amounts in most of them.
