A number of common features for the erosion of condensed gases by ion or electron bombardment are discussed. The overall pattern shows many similarities for erosion via electronic transitions induced by primary electrons and light MeV-ions. Generally a pronounced thickness dependence occurs for electron bombardment. Yields for 2 keV electrons on solid CO are included, as well as the appearance of an involatile residue after electron irradiation of condensed CO.
