A two-dimensional volatility basis set : 1 . organic-aerosol mixing thermodynamics

  title={A two-dimensional volatility basis set : 1 . organic-aerosol mixing thermodynamics},
  author={Neil M Donahue and Scott A. Epstein and Spyros N Pandis and Allen L Robinson},
We develop the thermodynamic underpinnings of a two-dimensional volatility basis set (2D-VBS) employing saturation mass concentration ( Co) and the oxygen content (O:C) to describe volatility, mixing thermodynamics, and chemical evolution of organic aerosol. The work addresses a simple question: “Can we reasonably constrain organic-aerosol composition in the atmosphere based on only two measurable organic properties, volatility and the extent of oxygenation?” This is an extension of our earlier… CONTINUE READING
