This is, of course, a simplified estimate because the effects of precipitation, dry deposition and chemical conversion processes have not been included. The net effect of the first two will be a reduction in the probability field in an inhomogeneous manner reflecting the distribution of precipitation within the domain and the spatial and temporal inhomogeneity of dry deposition rates.
