ABSTRACT
Atmospheric aerosol particles play an important part in the control of the state of the atmosphere. Since the effects of the particles depend on their size and chemical composition, the determination of the mass balance as a function of the size is of particular importance. The chemical mass balance of coarse and fine particles has been separately study in several works. However, more detailed information about fine particles is still needed. This is true in particular concerning the relative importance of inorganic sulfate and organic compounds since a considerable body of evidences suggest that fine particles in the atmosphere consist mainly of these two kinds of species. Recent measurements also show that an important part of organic carbon can be found in water soluble species. Thus, it is evident that organic particles also takes place in the control of atmospheric processes like cloud formation and visibility degradation. For comparing the possible role of sulfate and organic particles, the parallel determination of their physical and chemical properties is obviously needed. For this reason a program was initiated in Hungary to determine the necessary particle properties in rural continental air. Similar investigation was previously carried out by Neusüss et al..
