Aerosol properties such as the number of particles that activate to form cloud drops and the mass contained within speci8ed size ranges (as in the PM 2.5 and PM 10 regulatory standards) require integration over only part of the full size range of the particle distribution function (PDF) and may be formally expressed as integrals over kernels involving the Heaviside step function. Determination of these properties requires essentially that the size spectrum be partitioned into two (or more… CONTINUE READING
