Abstract:Based on the results from this research on ambient and laboratory aerosols, it can be concluded that (1) presence of organic compounds (i.e., glutaric and succinic acids) decrease the hygroscopic growth of aerosol particles when compared with aerosol particles composed of pure inorganic compounds (i.e., sodium chloride and ammonium sulfate) and that increasing the mass ratio of these organic species results in a reduction in the aerosol's optical hygroscopicity.
