Subchapter 4-2c: Using observations and calculated stratospheric loss rates for ozone-depleting substances

Links on this page are associated with Chapter 4 of the lifetimes assessment, on inferred lifetimes from observed trace gas distributions. All results are preliminary work in progress and should only be used in connection with this project.
