Indicative of the importance of different chemicals interacting to cause smog, is the term photochemical smog.
Because this type of smog forms when chemical reactions take place in the presence of sunlight, it is termed photochemical smog.
Puralytics, winner of this year's CleanTech Open, uses photochemical processes work to break down or remove contaminants from water.
On Earth, methane produced by bogs or cows can remain for a decade; on Mars, for reasons that are not fully understood but imply a photochemical destruction process unlike anything now known, the gas is destroyed in under a year.
Ozonolysis and photolysis of alkene-terminated self-assembled monolayers on quartz nanoparticles: implications for photochemical aging of organic aerosol particles, J. Park, A.L. Gomez, M.L. Walser, A. Lin, and S.A. Nizkorodov, Phys.
Mixed with pollution from the growing number of heavy industries in northern China, the particles create photochemical smogs in Korea, Japan, and toxic winds that blow across the Pacific to the west coast of the United States, adding the problem of “global dimming” to that of global warming.5
Ozone is an important tracer of photochemical processes in the atmosphere of Mars.
The team also performed measurements of the ozone abundance over the Syrtis Major region, which will help to constrain photochemical models in this region.
Putting the compatibility of the data from these two instruments on a firm base will support combining the ground-based infrared measurements with the SPICAM ultraviolet measurements in testing the photochemical models of the Martian atmosphere.
To test predictions by current models of photochemical processes and general atmospheric circulation patterns, observations of spatial and temporal ozone variations are required.
