1979; Andrea 1991; Rudolph et al. 1995). Measurements taken in Beijing in 1985 and 1986 showed typical monthly average concentrations of 720–1250 pptv, which are substantially higher than background levels, of around 600 pptv, at similar latitudes. Low-temperature coal burning may be the source of this excess, but on a global scale this source is likely to be small. Certain fungi can also produce CH3Cl in significant quantities. 3 Tg/yr (Cowan et al. 1973; White 1982 a, b; Harper 1985; and David Harper’s unpublished data 1997 communicated to the author).

Fabian Fig. 12. Vertical distribution of ozone in the Earth’s atmosphere [1] However, unlike the stratospheric ozone depletion, ozone episodes cause no adverse effect. The phenomenon of springtime tropospheric ozone destruction in the northern polar region is not of global significance but it is puzzling and to date not clearly understood. A new combined BrO–ClO mechanism has been proposed to explain the Arctic ozone episodes [99] and is claimed to be more efficient than the BrO–BrO mechanism used by Barrie et al.
