Methyl bromide (CH3Br) and methyl chloride (CH3Cl) are two halocarbons that are unique in that they play a significant role in stratospheric ozone destruction, and are mainly produced by natural systems. The current average tropospheric mixing ratios are 7.9 pptv CH3Br and 550 pptv CH3Cl (WMO, 2007). Although CH3Br and CH3Cl are present in such low concentrations, their atmospheric life times are sufficiently long that they can be transported to the stratosphere via the tropical tropopause at the equator. This process takes approximately six months.
