Elemental composition of fog interstitial particle size fractions and hydrophobic fractions related to fog droplet nucleation scavenging

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


The cloud nucleation scavenging process was studied during a joint campaign of the EUROTRAC sub‐project Ground‐based Cloud Experiment. It was found that the particle size has a strong influence on the partitioning of particles between the cloud droplet and the interstitial aerosol reservoirs. A new aerosol sampling unit, the relative humidity processing system, was employed for the extraction of particles with a low growth‐ability with respect to increased relative humidity. The system supplied tracer elements on the particle growth‐ability. These elements could be used to identify a factor related to particle hygroscopic properties, which was in effect as a selector of cloud condensation nuclei.
