Shapes of soot aerosol particles and implications for their effects on climate
[1] Soot aerosol particles (also called light-absorbing, black, or elemental carbon) are major contributors to global warming through their absorption of solar radiation. When embedded in organic
Individual aerosol particles from biomass burning in southern Africa: 2, Compositions and aging of inorganic particles
[1] Individual aerosol particles collected over southern Africa during the SAFARI 2000 field study were studied using transmission electron microscopy and field-emission scanning electron microscopy.
Prompt deliquescence and efflorescence of aerosol nanoparticles
Literature reports have differed on the possibilities of discontinuous and continuous (i.e., prompt and nonprompt) deliquescence and efflorescence of aerosol particles in the nanosize regime.
Individual aerosol particles from biomass burning in southern Africa: 1. Compositions and size distributions of carbonaceous particles
[1] Individual aerosol particles in smoke plumes from biomass fires and in regional hazes in southern Africa were studied using analytical transmission electron microscopy (TEM), which allowed
Internally mixed soot, sulfates, and organic matter in aerosol particles from Mexico City
Soot particles, which are aggregated carbonaceous spherules with graphitic structures, are major aerosol constituents that result from burning of fossil fuel, biofuel, and biomass. Their properties
Atmospheric tar balls: Particles from biomass and biofuel burning
[1] “Tar balls” are amorphous, carbonaceous spherules that occur in the tropospheric aerosol as a result of biomass and biofuel burning. They form a distinct group of particles with diameters
Fe‐Mg lattice diffusion in olivine
The Fe-Mg interdiffusion coefficients D and activation energies for interdiffusion in single crystals of San Carlos olivine have been measured as functions of Fe/(Fe + Mg), temperature, pO2, and
Influence of sea-salt on aerosol radiative properties in the Southern Ocean marine boundary layer
There has been considerable debate about the relative importance of sea-salt and sulphate from non-sea-salt sources in determining aerosol radiative effects in the marine boundary layer. In the
Evolution of biomass burning aerosol properties from an agricultural fire in southern Africa
Measurements on the UK Met Office C‐130 within a distinct biomass burning plume during the Southern AFricAn Regional science Initiative (SAFARI 2000) show an increase in the single scattering albedo
