Short summary
Chlorofluorocarbons, CFCs, are man-made compounds emitted into the atmosphere. Recently, several CFC compounds (CCl2FCCl2F (CFC-112), CCl3CClF2 (CFC-112a), CCl3CF3 (CFC-113a)) were observed in the atmosphere for the first time while their impact on stratospheric ozone and climate is presently not well characterized. In this study, the UV absorption spectra of these CFCs and CCl2FCF3 (CFC-114a) were measured, and an atmospheric model was used to evaluate their impacts on ozone and climate.
