Abstract: [1] The gas-phase products of dimethylsulfide (DMS) oxidation are simulated in the global 3D Model of Atmospheric Transport and Chemistry (MATCH). The focus is on the sensitivities to the assumed mechanisms of DMS oxidation chemistry in large-scale models, and hence volcanic and anthropogenic sources of SO 2 are ignored. Four representations of DMS chemistry are considered, including two comprehensive mechanisms (about 50 reactions) and two parameterized schemes (four and five reactions). The gas-phase yields…
