The light caused the release of atoms of chlorine and bromine from chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the atmosphere, which deplete ozone by combining with ozone molecules and breaking them into chlorine or bromine monoxide and ordinary oxygen.
Despite the detection of bromine monoxide (BrO) in the atmosphere some 20 years ago, bromine nitrate (BrONO2) was first observed in 2008 when scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology discovered the gas's weak signal with data from MIPAS (the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding).
The team's new analyses of ground-based weather data bolster this notion by showing that some polar air masses containing elevated concentrations of bromine monoxide (BrO) had on the previous day passed over areas of fresh sea ice, which probably sported frost flowers.
