The researchers found that while the amount of ozone depletion arising from VSLS in the atmosphere today is small compared to that caused by longer-lived gases, such as CFCs, VSLS-driven ozone depletion was found to be almost four times more efficient at influencing climate.
Dr Hossaini explained: "Due to their short atmospheric lifetimes, VSLS break down and destroy ozone in the lowermost part of the stratosphere.
The researchers also separated out natural sources of VSLS -- such as seaweed in the ocean -- and those released due to human activity -- such as industrial processes -- in order to determine the relative importance of each.
