Key role of organic carbon in the sunlight-enhanced atmospheric aging of soot by O2.

Abstract

Soot particles are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and have important climatic and health effects. The aging processes of soot during long-range transport result in variability in its morphology, microstructure, and hygroscopic and optical properties, subsequently leading to the modification of soot's climatic and health effects. In the present study the aging… (More)
