A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 6, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1993
ANTHROPOGENIC EMISSIONS AND CONTROL: CFCs, OCS, VOCs
Production and Release to the Atmosphere of CFCs 113, 114 and
115," D.A. Fisher (Exper. Sta., Du Pont Co., POB 80320,
Wilmington DE 19880), P.M. Midgley, Atmos. Environ., 27A(2),
271-276, Feb. 1993.
Presents results of an audited world-wide survey of production
and use categories, for the years 1980-1989. Annual emissions are
calculated, based on estimates of service time delays.
Magnitude and Relative Environmental Impact of Air Pollutant
Emissions from Aerosol Industry Products," J.D. Peak (Sch.
Biol. Sci., Univ. Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK), R.M.
Harrison, Environ. Technol., 13(9), 867-873, Sep.
Evaluates current and likely emissions from aerosol products
in terms of ozone depletion, global warming and photochemical
ozone production. Future impacts are likely to be minimal in
comparison with those from other sources.
"Measurements of Carbonyl Sulfide in Automotive Emissions
and an Assessment of its Importance to the Global Sulfur
Cycle," A. Fried (NCAR, POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307), B.
Henry et al., J. Geophys. Res., 97(D13),
14,621-14,634, Sep. 20, 1992.
Estimates an upper limit for global OCS emissions from
automobiles of 0.008 Tg/yr, 100-600 times less important than the
sum of all OCS sources. However, OCS emissions may be important
on a local scale.
Global Inventory of Volatile Organic Compound Emissions from
Anthropogenic Sources," S.D. Piccot (Sci. Applic. Intl.
Corp., Durham NC 27707), J.J. Watson, J.W. Jones, ibid., 97(D9),
9897-9912, June 20, 1992.
This inventory estimates total global anthropogenic VOC
emissions of 110,000 Gg/yr, about 10% less than other estimates.
The U.S. is the largest emitter (21%), followed by the former
USSR, China, India and Japan. Fuel wood combustion and savanna
burning were among the largest sources globally.
