The ocean plays a significant role in the trace gas composition of the atmosphere, via sea-to-air emissions, which are controlled by biotic and abiotic production and consumption processes occurring within the water column. Both the halocarbons and alkyl nitrates affect the 'oxidising capacity' of the atmosphere, primarily as a result of their influence on ozone concentration. Halocarbons have been shown to be produced biogenically by various species of microalgae in laboratory studies. However, the production...
