Prodigious amounts of hydrogen oxides generated by corona discharges on tree leaves

J.M. Jenkins, G.A. Olson, P.J. McFarland & W.H. Brune
Prodigious amounts of the hydroxyl radical (OH) are generated by weak electrical discharges, such as corona discharges induced on trees during thunderstorms. As was observed in studies of sparks and subvisible discharges, corona discharges on leaves produce OH and hydroperoxyl (HO2) amounts that are several orders of magnitude larger than usual. Our laboratory studies demonstrate that production rates of OH and HO2 depend on the applied electric field that generates the corona discharge, leaf dryness,...
