ABSTRACT
The characteristic time of many of the microphysical aerosol processes is days up to several weeks, hence longer than the residence time of the aerosol within a typical atmospheric compartment such as the marine boundary layer, the free troposphere etc. To understand aerosol properties, one cannot confine the discussion to such compartments. This paper presents simulations using a box model that describes aerosol microphysics within the context of atmospheric dynamics that connects those compartments. The model results for a Clean Marine and a Polluted Continental air mass are compared to observations.
