Methyl iodide is a major carrier of gas phase iodine from the ocean into the atmosphere. In the atmosphere, CH3I is photodissociated by near-UV light, and participate in ozone destruction and aerosol formation in troposphere. In the ocean, the production sources and sinks, inlcuding sea-air flux, of methyl iodide must be investigated to understand the CH3I global cycle.
