Greenhouse gas measurements from a uk network of tall towers: technical description and first results
(Copernicus GmbH, 2018-03-14)
A network of three tall tower measurement stations was set up in 2012 across the United Kingdom to expand measurements made at the long-term background northern hemispheric site, Mace Head, Ireland. Reliable and precise ...
Analysis and interpretation of 18 years of mercury observations since 1996 at mace head, ireland
(Elsevier BV, 2015-01-01)
On the occurrence of open ocean particle production and growth events
We present new results from the Mace Head coastal station illustrating that open ocean new particle production and growth events occur frequently during periods of high oceanic productivity over the N. E. Atlantic. For the ...
Submicron ne atlantic marine aerosol chemical composition and abundance: seasonal trends and air mass categorization
Three years of continuous Aerosol Mass Spectrometry measurements at the Mace Head Global Atmosphere Watch research station revealed seasonal patterns in the chemical composition of submicron NE Atlantic marine aerosol as ...
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 ...
A sea spray aerosol flux parameterization encapsulating wave state
(Copernicus GmbH, 2014-02-17)
A new sea spray source function (SSSF), termed Oceanflux Sea Spray Aerosol or OSSA, was derived based on in-situ sea spray aerosol measurements along with meteorological/physical parameters. Submicron sea spray aerosol ...
Detecting high contributions of primary organic matter to marine aerosol: a case study
Using on-line High-Resolution Aerosol Mass Spectrometry, we report submicron organic marine aerosol plume concentrations peaking at 3.8 mu g m(-3). These concentrations are far greater than previously determined by off-line ...
Wind-driven influences on aerosol light scattering in north-east atlantic air
Ten years (2001-2010) of aerosol light-scattering measurements in N.E. Atlantic marine air are analysed to determine wind-speed related influences on scattering properties. The scattering coefficient and the backscattering ...
Bistable effect of organic enrichment on sea spray radiative properties
Primary-produced sea spray aerosol, typically comprising sea-salt, but also enriched with organic matter (OM) in biologically active oceanic regions, impacts the global radiative budget through contributions to aerosol ...
Seasonal variation of the aerosol light scattering coefficient in marine air of the northeast atlantic
(Hindawi Limited, 2011-01-01)
Aerosol light scattering measurements were carried out using a TSI 3563 Nephelometer at the Mace Head Atmospheric Research Station, on the west coast of Ireland from year 2001-2010. A strong seasonal trend in the aerosol ...
