Atmospheric lifetime refers to the duration of time a greenhouse gas remains in the atmosphere before being decomposed by chemical processes.

Atmospheric life is the definite time duration that an identified greenhouse gas (such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride etc.) that will remain on the atmosphere until it will undergo chemical process that will lead to its decomposition, will be breakdown or absorbed by plants, oceans and Earth’s surface (soil / rock). The warming effects on the climate persist over a long period of time due to the many major greenhouse gases that stays in the atmosphere for tens to hundreds of years that will span it effect both on present and future generations.
