ABSTRACT
The article focuses on aerosol particle analysis. It informs that the effects of aerosols on human health, atmospheric chemistry, and climate are among the central topics in environmental research. They can cause respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, enhance the formation or depletion of reactive trace gases like ozone, influence the formation of clouds and precipitation, and affect the earth's energy balance by scattering and absorption of radiation. Aerosol particles originate from a wide variety of natural and anthropogenic sources, including primary particle emission by combustion processes and wind- or traffic-related suspension of dust as well as secondary particle formation by gas-to-particle-conversion in the atmosphere.

    Cloud droplet activation parameterizations used in aerosol indirect effect assessments often assume that droplet growth after activation is much greater than their equilibrium size close to cloud base. This assumption does not hold for large CCN which may experience limited growth. If a large...
