A033:
Cycling and Reactivity of Volatile Organic Compounds in the Atmosphere





Session ID#: 26079

Session Description:
Volatile organic compounds (VOC), non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC) and oxygenated NMHC are anthropogenic and naturally derived atmospheric constituents that play an important role in a variety of significant tropospheric processes. These impacts include production of secondary organic aerosols (SOA) and changes in the oxidative capacity of the atmosphere. This session invites work on recent developments in the analysis of VOCs in environmental samples as well the identification of important atmospheric sources and sinks. Research exploring interactions with other systems through wet deposition and air-water gas exchange and the reactivity of VOCs in the atmosphere are also encouraged.
