Rates of direct photolysis in aquatic environment

Rates of direct photolysis in aquatic environment

Environmental Science and Technology 11(4): 359-366

Equations are derived that describe the direct photolysis rates of pollutants in the aquatic environment. The equations translate readily obtainable laboratory data into half-lives for photolysis under sunlight. Photolysis half-lives are calculated as a function of season, latitude, time-of-day, depth in water bodies, and ozone layer thickness. Experimental verification of the computed half-lives is presented.
