We investigate the CCN activity of freshly emitted biomass burning particles and their hygroscopic growth at a relative humidity (RH) of 85 %. The particles were produced in the Mainz combustion laboratory by controlled burning of various wood types. The water uptake at sub- and super- saturations is parameterized by the hygroscopicity parame- ter, (c.f. Petters and Kreidenweis, 2007). For the wood burns, is low, generally around 0.06. The main emphasis of this study is a comparison of derived… CONTINUE READING
