Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
Global Warming Potentials compare the integrated radiative forcing over a specified period (e.g., 100 years) from a unit mass pulse emission and are a way of comparing the potential climate change associated with emissions of different greenhouse gases.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The 100-year GWP is 1640.
Executive summary:

Global Warming Potentials compare the integrated radiative forcing over a specified period (e.g., 100 years) from a unit mass pulse emission and are a way of comparing the potential climate change associated with emissions of different greenhouse gases. The 100-year GWP for the test substance is 1640.
