Aqueous atmospheric organic processing : effects of fog and cloud composition
MetadataShow full item record
Cloud and fog droplets are well-suited venues for organic reactions leading to the formation of suspended particulate matter in the atmosphere. Suspended particulate matter formed through aqueous reactions is called "aqueous secondary organic aerosol" or aqSOA, and can interact with solar radiation and adversely impact human and ecosystem health. Although atmospheric observations and lab simulations have verified the formation of aqSOA, little is known about where and when it occurs in the atmosphere. The organic (carbonaceous) reactions leading to aqSOA formation also degrade chemicals in the ...
