Atmospheric Lifetimes of Halogenated Hydrocarbons: Improved Estimations from an Analysis of Modeling Results.



Vladimir L. Orkin, Michael J. Kurylo III, Eric L. Fleming


Detailed results of computer modeling of halocarbon removal rates from the atmosphere were analyzed to find simple correlations useful for estimating atmospheric lifetimes of new industrial chemicals based on the rate constants for their reactions with OH and UV absorption spectra.
