Sulphur (S) and sodium (Na) accessions through rainfall at sites of varying distances from the coast in Peninsular Malaysia were monitored. Results indicate that S accession was of anthropogenic and marine origin, with S deposition at sites in the central and south transects being influenced more by industrial activities. Na accession was related to the monsoons, with sites on the east coast having high accumulations during the northeast monsoon, and sites on the west coast during the southwest monsoon. Na:S ratio was lower than their ratio in sea water, indicating that S accession was from anthropogenic and terrestrial origins.
