Short summary
Organic compounds are emitted in large quantities from natural and human-influenced sources. Removal from the atmosphere occurs mainly by reaction with hydroxyl (OH) radicals, and initiates reaction sequences forming pollutants such as ozone and organic particles. Due to their very large number, it is impossible to measure the removal rate for all compounds, and most have to be estimated. An updated and extended estimation method is reported for use in atmospheric models and impact assessments.
