[1] The oxygen isotopic composition (D17
O) of non-
seasalt sulfate (NSS) aerosol was measured in samples from
Alert, Canada over one year (July 1999­June 2000) and
used to quantify the S(IV) oxidants. Measurements of D17
O
in NSS are used to evaluate the relative contributions of O3,
H2O2, and OH oxidation leading to the formation of SO4

compared to a model of Feichter et al. (1996). The isotopic
values suggest that there is a twofold overestimate of ozone
oxidation in the model during winter. The isotopic
