Abstract:

The chemical kinetics of N2O are considered in detail. The mechanisms of formation and consumption of N2O and their total rates below 100 km were calculated as well as present knowledge of the parameters involved allows. N2O is formed by one or more of the reactions N2 O- yields N2O e, N2A3 O2 yields N2O O, and N2 O N2O photon. It is consummed by the photodissociation into N2 O and N NO. The rates of these reactions are slow enough to permit the mixing of N2O throughout this region of the atmosphere. Author
