Estimates of continental sources of CFC-11, CFC-12, CCl , CH CCl and N O are derived from the atmospheric lifetime experiment in Adrigole, Ireland, and anthropogenic emissions of CCl and N O from Europe have been identified. Relative source strengths are consistent with global budgets for the halocarbons and N O. Different industrial release patterns for halocarbons are observed for Europe, the western United States and Australia. © 1985 Nature Publishing Group. 4 3 3 2 4 2 2
