Atmospheric Trends of Carbon Monoxide (CO) by Khalil and Rasmussen
Entry ID: OGI_CO_TRENDS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Carbon monoxide (CO) is a weak greenhouse gas but it is an important
precursor to tropospheric ozone (O3) and other trace gases in the
Earth's atmosphere, which can cause widespread changes in tropospheric
chemistry, global warming, and other climatic changes. Hydroxyl (OH)
radicals in the global atmosphere are removed primarily through
reactions with CO. OH radicals ... View entire text
