An understanding of the exchange of pollutants and trace substances between the atmosphere and the biosphere is essential to a full appreciation of the transport and chemical transformation of pollutants in the troposphere, and to the implementation of any policy for pollutant abatement. The biosphere is the ultimate sink for all pollutants or their oxidation products, and so the rates of deposition play a critical role in determining pollutant lifetimes in the atmosphere, their transport range and their concentration.
