Falls of black rain were observed in a remote area of Scotland during some convective storms in the years 1862 and 1863. Contemporary meteorological observations have been used in a notional trajectory analysis which indicates that the particulate material originated in industrial areas hundreds of kilometres distant. Thus, under certain atmospheric conditions, long range transport of significant quantities of pollutants may have been possible a century ago despite the low fuel consumption. © 1986.
