(Field Studies of the degradation of Volatile Organic Compounds)

Scientific objectives: Investigation of the oxidation products of dimethylsulphid (DMS) and of isopren. Two field experiments were performed: in a coastal area in the french Bretagne (Pointe Penmarch, May -June 1993), and in an Eucalyptus forest in Portugal (Tabua, June 1994).
