Atmospheric oxidation capacity sustained by a tropical forest
Terrestrial vegetation, especially tropical rain forest, releases vast quantities of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to the atmosphere, which are removed by oxidation reactions and deposition ofExpand

Nitrogen and sulfur deposition on regional and global scales:a multimodel evaluation
We use 23 atmospheric chemistry transport models to calculate current and future (2030) deposition of reactive nitrogen (NOy, NHx) and sulfate (SOx) to land and ocean surfaces. The models are drivenExpand

The relationship between relative humidity and the dewpoint temperature in moist air - A simple conversion and applications
The relative humidity (RH) and the dewpoint temperature (td) are two widely used indicators of the amount of moisture in air. The exact conversion from RH to td, as well as highly accurateExpand

What does the global mean OH concentration tell us
Abstract. The global mean OH concentration ([OH]GM) has been used as an indicator of the atmospheric oxidizing efficiency and its changes over time. It is also used for evaluating the performance ofExpand
