Tropospheric Photochemistry and its Response to UV Changes
The photochemistry of the troposphere is highly non-linear, and may be changing due to emissions of gases related to human activities. Increases in tropospheric ultraviolet (UV) radiation, due to stratospheric ozone depletion, may also perturb the troposphere.
