Evidence of a natural marine source of oxalic acid and a possible link to glyoxal
This paper presents results supporting the existence of a natural source of oxalic acid over the oceans. Oxalate was detected in &quot;clean-sector&quot; marine aerosol samples at Mace Head (Ireland) (53 degrees ...
Is chlorophyll-athe best surrogate for organic matter enrichment in submicron primary marine aerosol?
Initial efforts toward developing a combined organic-inorganic sea spray source function parameterization for large-scale models made use of chlorophyll-a (Chl-a) and wind speed as input parameters to combine oceanic biology ...
Global modeling of the oceanic source of organic aerosols
(Hindawi Limited, 2010-01-01)
The global marine organic aerosol budget is investigated by a 3-dimensional chemistry-transport model considering recently proposed parameterisations of the primary marine organic aerosol (POA) and secondary organic aerosol ...
Surface tension prevails over solute effect in organic-influenced cloud droplet activation
(Springer Nature, 2017-06-21)
The spontaneous growth of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) into cloud droplets under supersaturated water vapour conditions is described by classic Kohler theory(1,2). This spontaneous activation of CCN depends on the ...
Primary marine organic aerosol: a dichotomy of low hygroscopicity and high ccn activity
High-time resolution measurements of primary marine organic sea-spray physico-chemical properties reveal an apparent dichotomous behavior in terms of water uptake: specifically sea-spray aerosol enriched in organic matter ...
