Destruction rates are estimated for interstellar dust grains as a function of size and composition of the grains, and the type of region in which the grain is located. Several idealized models of the interstellar medium are considered. The destruction mechanisms examined include sputtering and grain-grain collisions in interstellar shocks, sputtering and sublimation in H II regions, photodesorption by UV, sputtering by cosmic rays, and sublimation during a supernova radiation pulse. Sublimation… Expand
