Abstract:

Our first major goal is the acquisition of simultaneous measurements of aerosol optical properties as a function of ambient RH together with measurements of the aerosol size distribution to permit calculation of the dry aerosol size distribution and optical properties the quantities most appropriate for climate modeling. A second goal is the determination of the dry aerosol surface-to-volume ratio for a variety of marine environments. This parameter is quite important in the global-scale modeling of aerosol indirect forcing.
