Abstract:

Samples of maritime light-scattering aerosols taken at sea in the vicinity of the Virgin Islands in April, July and September of 1970 proved to contain 35 organic material, showed little response to changes in humidity, and gave evidence of containing the organic fraction of the aerosol as a protective coating on the rest of the particulate material. There was a significant difference in the data taken in the different months which may indicate a seasonal difference. Author
