  1. 1. Hygroscopic Growth of Atmospheric Aerosol Particles and Its Relation to Nucleation Scavenging in Clouds

    Författare :Birgitta Svenningsson; Kärnfysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aerosol formation; atmospheric aerosols; hygroscopic growth; nucleation scavenging; cloud; water activity; external mixing; tandem differential mobility analyser; Kärnfysik; cloud condensation nuclei spectra; Nuclear physics; TDMA; Fysicumarkivet A:1997:Svenningsson; inorganic salts;

    Sammanfattning : Aerosol particles in the atmosphere are important in several aspects. Some major aerosol constituents that are deposited in ecosystems are acidic or fertilisers and some minor or trace constituents are toxic. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Marine biogenic polysaccharides as a potential source of aerosol in the high Arctic : Towards a link between marine biology and cloud formation

    Författare :Qiuju Gao; Caroline Leck; Ulrika Nilsson; Eric Saltzman; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polysaccharides; Biogenic polymer microgels; Arctic Ocean; LC MS MS; Surface microlayer; Marine aerosol particles; Remote marine cloud condensation nuclei; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Sammanfattning : Primary marine aerosol particles containing biogenic polymer microgels play a potential role for cloud formation in the pristine high Arctic summer. One of the major sources of the polymer gels in Arctic aerosol was suggested to be the surface water and more specifically, the surface microlayer (SML) of the open leads within the perennial sea ice as a result of bubble bursting at the air-sea interface.

  3. 3. Modelling the effects of organic aerosol phase partitioning processes on cloud formation

    Författare :Samuel Joseph Lowe; Ilona Riipinen; Daniel Partridge; Harri Kokkola; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cloud droplet activation; organic aerosol; cloud parcel modelling; Köhler theory; Sensitivity and Uncertainty analysis; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Atmospheric aerosols particles may act as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) that provide sites for condensation of water vapour for the formation of cloud droplets, called cloud droplet activation. Whether aerosol particles are CCN is determined by their size, composition and the ambient humidity. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Hygroscopic Properties of Aerosols from Open-Air Burning and Controlled Combustion of Biomass

    Författare :Jenny Rissler; Kärnfysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cloud condensation nuclei; H-TDMA; CCN; hygroscopic growth; Teknik; internal and external mixture; CLAIRE; SMOCC; Physics; Fysik; Environmental chemistry; Technological sciences; Miljökemi; tandem differential mobility analyzer; slash and burn; Amazon; Biomass burning; combustion; Fysicumarkivet A:2005:Rissler;

    Sammanfattning : The major uncertainty in predicting the influence of human activities on global climate change is the effect of aerosols. Two physical properties of aerosols largely controlling their influence on climate are the particle number size distribution and the interaction of the particles with the surrounding water vapor.

  5. 5. Investigating aerosol effects on stratocumulus clouds through large-eddy simulation

    Författare :Ines Bulatovic; Annica Ekman; Caroline Leck; Ilona Riipinen; Daniel Grosvenor; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aerosol particles; stratocumulus; mixed-phase clouds; cloud microphysics; cloud radiative effects; Arctic; Arctic amplification; LES; aerosolpartiklar; stratusmoln; underkylda vattendroppar och iskristaller; molnmikrofysik; molnstrålningseffekter; Arktis; ”large-eddy simulation”; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Sammanfattning : Clouds have a large impact on Earth’s radiative budget by reflecting, absorbing and re-emitting radiation. They thus play a critical role in the climate system. Nevertheless, cloud radiative effects in a changing climate are highly uncertain. LÄS MER
