Abstract


The atmospheric chemistry of iodine is important for several reasons, including the influence of iodine oxides on the oxidising capacity of the troposphere, the formation of new particles, and the enrichment of iodine in marine aerosols and the transport of this essential dietary element to the continents. It is shown here that a substantial iodine source is I2, most likely emitted from macro-algae at low tide. This source accounts for the daytime production of new particles in the coastal marine boundary layer, and also explains the discovery of significant night-time levels of iodine oxides.
