Report of Working Group I: Gases
Numerous volatile components are involved in dynamic photochemical and biological processes in the upper layers of the oceans. As a consequence, the ocean surface can act as a significant source and, on occasion, as a sink for trace gases which play an important role in the chemistry of the atmosphere (e.g., CO, NO, N2O). In some instances (e.g., (CH3)2S, CH3I) the fluxes from the ocean to the atmosphere make significant contributions to the global cycling of the elements, and in others (e.g., CO2) the flux into the ocean exerts an important control on atmospheric composition.
