Abstract

A major tropospheric loss of soluble species such as nitric acid (HNO3) results from scavenging by water droplets. Several theoretical formulations have been advanced which relate an effective time independent loss rate for soluble species to statistical properties of precipitation such as the wet fraction and length of a precipitation cycle. Various "effective' loss rates that have been proposed are compared with the results of detailed time dependent model calculations carried out over a seasonal time scale. The results of numerous time dependent seasonal model runs are used to derive numerical values for the nitric acid residence time for several assumed sets of precipitation statistics. -from Authors
