In the atmosphere OH radical is mainly produced by a reaction initiated by UV photolysis of ozone. Once produced in the atmosphere, a fraction is transferred to the surface layer of the ocean. In this study we demonstrated that the air-water transference of OH radical induces strong cell death on marine phytoplakton being picophytoplankton organisms the most vulnerable to its effects.
