Key Papers on Iron Aerosols for CH4 Oxidization
Wittmer & Zetzsch
An early paper describing how iron oxide aerosol encourages the generation of chlorine radicals. Smog chamber data
Oeste, de Richter, Ming, Calliol
A description of the method we plan to use to oxidize methane, within the context of all the complex interactions of atmospheric chemistry.
Ming, de Richter, Oeste, Tulip
A shorter description of the methodology we are implementing.

Estimation of the impact of removing atmospheric methane on global surface temperature
Qinyi Li, Daphne Meidan, et. al 2023
1250, and 1880 Tg Cl/year to the RCP8.5 scenario, chosen to have the most
consistent current-day trends of methane, will decrease the surface temperature
by 0.2, 0.4, and 0.6 °C by 2050, respectively.
Maarten M. J. W. van Herpen, Qinyi Lib, Alfonso Saiz-Lopez, Jesper B. Liisberg, et. al 2023
Using a combination of field data and global modeling, we demonstrate a mechanism in which a mix of Sahara dust and sea spray aerosol activated by sunlight produces large amounts of active chlorine.
