Sea salt worsens coastal air pollution: study
Date:4/8/2008

r pollution. Their findings also show that up to 30 per cent of the ground-level ozone present in seaside cities such as Houston may be the result of pollution mixing with salt from ocean mist.

Dr. Osthoff intends to continue to work on halogen compounds at the University of Calgary.

"The Texas study covered only a very limited geographic area. We would like to find out to what extent this chemistry affects air quality in other regions, for example, the the Greater Vancouver area, or the Arctic, he said. Our study indicates that halide salts such as chloride or bromide, which have been thought of as being relatively inert, may be playing a much greater role overall in the lower atmosphere."

The paper High levels of nitryl chloride in the polluted subtropical marine boundary layer is available in the April 6, 2008 advance online edition of the journal Nature Geoscience at: http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/vaop/ncurrent/index.html. The print version is scheduled to appear on May 1st, 2008.
