[7.03] Grain Destruction and Depletions in the Interstellar Medium

E. Dwek, R. K. Smith (Lab. Astronomy and Solar Physics, NASA GSFC)

We combine the recent calculations of grain destruction rates in shocks of Jones et al. (19xx) with previous studies of grain destruction (Draine amp; Salpeter, 1978) and calculate the grain destruction timescales in a multiphase interstellar medium. These timescales are used to address the problem of grain evolution and depletions in the interstellar medium.
