(WAE, hereafter), there is an error in one of the reactants of
Reaction R34 in Table 2. Sulfur monoxide (SO) instead of
sulfur dioxide (SO2) was used. The correct reaction is:
SO2 þ O3 ! SO3 þ O2ðR34Þ
The rate coefficient, k, of the reaction is, however, the same
as for R34 of WAE, i.e., k = 3.6 Â 10À12
above correction in R34 impacts the SO2 abundance and
