Highlights:

• A new terpene and terpenoid emission algorithm for conifers was developed.

• The algorithm is based on the thermodynamics of nonelectrolyte partitioning.

• Emission rates are related to conifer oleoresin composition.

•Activity coefficients account for solute–oleoresin interactions.

•The emission algorithm is a promising approach for developing emission inventories

 Abstract:

The following algorithm, which is based on the thermodynamics of nonelectrolyte partitioning, was developed to predict emission rates of terpenes and terpenoids from specific storage sites in conifers:
