Short summary
The cleansing capacity of the atmosphere is studied through the hydroxyl radical (OH) chemical reactivity in numerical simulations of natural and urban environments. Turbulence-driven segregation of chemical compounds in the atmospheric boundary layer is explored and may partially explain discrepancies between observed and modeled OH reactivity in both environments.
