Composition and mixing state of airborne particles over the Azores
Laskin, Alexander — Purdue University
Area of research:
The paper presents detailed chemical imaging of individual atmospheric particles collected over the Azores during long-range transport events.
Observations indicate that entrainment of particles from long-range continental sources alters the mixing state population and cloud condensation properties of aerosol in the region.
The work provides field observation data to inform atmospheric models that simulate sources and particle composition in the eastern North Atlantic.
