Abstract: It is well-established that marine micro- and macroalgae form volatile halogenated compounds (halocarbons). Production occurs throughout the world ocean with strong regional sources in coastal areas. In the atmosphere, these compounds are converted to reactive inorganic halogen compounds, which degrade ozone. Biogenic halocarbons typically contain iodine or bromine, which have higher ozone depletion potentials than chlorine. The main pathway of halocarbon formation involves haloperoxidases,... more
