Abstract

Atmospheric aerosol particles are solid or liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere. They are directly emitted into the atmosphere or they are formed via the oxidation of gaseous precursors. Understanding the behavior of particles in the atmosphere is particularly important because they can affect the Earth’s climate, visibility, air quality, human health, and the ecosystem. As a result, they are a topic of high interest for the scientific community...
