Stratospheric CH4, HCl and ClO and the chlorine-ozone cycle

SINCE it was suggested1 that chlorine may influence stratospheric ozone balance, and that halocarbons can contribute significantly to the stratospheric chlorine content2-4 much attention has been paid to the subject. We report here a new determination of atmospheric methane levels which gives a value lower than that often assumed by other workers. In model calculations this suggests that chlorine has a greater effect on the ozone balance than previously suspected.
