Aerodyne aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS) and Aerodyne aerosol chemical speciation monitor (ACSM) mass spectra are widely used to quantify organic aerosol (OA) elemental composition, oxidation state, and major environmental sources. The OA CO2+ fragment is among the most important measurements for such analyses. Here, we show that a non-OA CO2+ signal can… CONTINUE READING
