Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d95apr65

"Quantum Yield for Carbon Monoxide Production in the 248 nm Photodissociation of Carbonyl Sulfide (OCS)," Z. Zhao (Sch. Earth & Atmos. Sci., Georgia Tech, Atlanta GA 30332), R.E. Stickel, P.H. Wine, Geophys. Res. Lett., 22(5), 615-618, Mar. 1, 1995.

Measurements suggest that the contribution of OCS as a precursor to the lower stratospheric sulfate aerosol layer is somewhat larger than previously thought.

Item #d95apr66

"Vertical Profile Measurements of Carbonylsulfide in the Stratosphere," A. Engel (Forschungszentrum Jülich GMBH, ICG-1, 52425 Jülich, Ger.), U. Schmidt, ibid., 21(20), 2219-2222, Oct. 1, 1994.

Measures COS for 17-30 km altitude, using whole air sampling with subsequent gas chromatographic analysis. Calculates removal in the stratosphere to be 69 ± 28 years. Comparing this number to the estimated fluxes needed to sustain background H2SO4 aerosol confirms that most nonvolcanic aerosol is produced by the oxidation of COS in the stratosphere.
