A Simulation of Long-Range Transport of CFCS in the Troposphere Using a 3-D Global Lagrangian Model with 6-Hourly Meteorological Fields
Throughout this century the composition of the troposphere has been perturbed by anthropogenic emissions. These emissions are not uniformly distributed over the globe but are concentrated in the northern mid-latitudes in industrial regions. Biogenic emissions are largely emitted from the land and so too are biased towards the northern hemisphere. A modelling study of the global chemistry of the troposphere requires knowledge of how pollutants are carried away from their mainly continental source regions to the remote atmosphere and the southern hemisphere.
