Vertical profiles of the concentration of several alkyl halides, as well as isoprene, were made from the surface to 200 m, using a tethered balloon platform, near Mace Head, Ireland in September-October 2003. Profiles indicate a surface source of several alkyl halides. Alkyl halides have been proposed as a source of new particles in the atmosphere. Estimates of emission rates (μg m h ) were made using a flux-gradient technique for CH Br (0.8), CHBr (6), CH IBr (0.1), CH I (0.1), and isoprene (24). © CSIRO 2005. -2 -1 2 2 3 2 2 2
