[1] Sea-salt aerosol (SSA) is an important constituent of natural marine aerosol to which anthropogenic aerosols must be compared when assessing their climatic influence. Size distributions of particles, produced by bubbles from coastal oceanic breaking waves, were found to have sizes as small as 0.01 mm, with 60% smaller than 0.1 mm diameter. The thermal stability of these particles and their growth factor measured under increasing humidity indicate that most are sea salt. These SSA size… CONTINUE READING
