REACTION RATE DATA FOR THE STRATOSPHERE. HOW GOOD ARE THEY NOW
The reaction rate and photochemical data currently available for use in modelling of stratospheric chemistry are reviewed. They are characterized in terms of their quality and applicability. Of 46 'important' chemical reactions, the data for 33 are adequate. For 82 'less important' reactions, the data are generally less reliable, but in many cases sufficient. A similar pattern exists for photochemical processes. The data are adequate for 8 of 16 'important' processes and are adequate for 5 of 16 'less important' processes. A list of reactions for which more measurements are needed is supplied.
