Iodine has a complex chemistry in aerosols in the marine boundary layer (MBL), and is involved in both ozone destruction and new aerosol particle formation processes. Work in this area has focussed almost exclusively on inorganic iodine chemistry. Results from two research cruises in the Atlantic Ocean, covering wide longitude (60°W to 0°W) and latitude (50°N to 50°S) ranges indicate that soluble organic iodine species are both widespread and abundant in marine aerosol. The reactivity of these species is yet to be determined, but may influence the concentrations of some aerosol inorganic iodine species, and may also impact on MBL ozone destruction reactions.
