[1] Both surface and volume uptake can contribute to the removal of tropospheric gases by ice-phase precipitation and cloud particles. These processes were evaluated by depositing ice in the presence of several gaseous oxyhydrocarbons and analyzing the chemical composition of the deposit. Acetone, methanol, ethanol, n-propanol, n-butanol, tert-butanol, cyclohexanol, and toluene were tested. Volume uptake appears to be the dominant process, and results are presented as temperature-dependent… CONTINUE READING
