Environmental context. Ozone depletion events (ODEs) in the Arctic lower atmosphere drive profound changes in the chemistry of nitrogen oxides (NOx) because of the presence of bromine oxide (BrO). These are investigated using the isotopic composition of atmospheric nitrate (NO3–), which is a ubiquitous species formed through the oxidation of nitrogen oxides. Since BrO is speculated to play a key role in the atmospheric chemistry of marine regions and in the free troposphere, our studies… CONTINUE READING
