Abstract. Rapid economic growth in China over the past 30 years has resulted in significant increases in the concentrations of small particulates (PM 2.5 ) over the city of Beijing. In addition to health problems, high aerosol loading can impact visibility and thus reduce photolysis rates over the city leading to potential implications for photochemistry. Photolysis rates are highly sensitive not only to the vertical distribution of aerosols but also to their composition as this can impact how t...

Abstract. Climate model simulations show a Brewer-Dobson circulation (BDC) acceleration in the course of climate change. While the mechanisms for the BDC strengthening are well understood, there are still open questions concerning its dynamical driving. Mean age of stratospheric air (AoA) is a useful transport diagnostic for accessing changes of the BDC. Analysing AoA from a subset of Chemistry Climate Model Initiative part 1 climate projection simulations, we find a remarkable agreement between...

Abstract. In the framework of the EU-FP7 BACCHUS project, an intensive field campaign was performed in Cyprus (2015/03). Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS), ground-based instruments, and remote-sensing observations were operating in parallel to provide an integrated characterization of aerosol-cloud interactions. Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) were equipped with a 5-hole probe, pyranometers, pressure, temperature and humidity sensors, and measured updraft velocity at cloud base and cloud o...

Abstract. The National Emission Inventory (NEI) of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports a steady decrease of US NO x emissions over the 2005–2017 period at a rate of 0.1 Mt a −1 (53 % decrease over the period), reflecting sustained efforts to improve air quality. Tropospheric NO 2 columns observed by the satellite-based Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) over the US show a steady decrease until 2009 but a flattening afterward, which has been attributed to a flattening of NO x emis...

Abstract. We present a range of airborne in-situ observations of biomass burning carbonaceous aerosol over tropical South America, including a case study of a large tropical forest wildfire and a series of regional survey flights across the Brazilian Amazon and Cerrado. The study forms part of the South American Biomass Burning Analysis (SAMBBA) Project, which was conducted during September and October 2012. We find limited evidence for net increases in aerosol mass through atmospheric aging com...

Abstract. Evidence of an underlying trend in the dependence of erythema effective ultraviolet (UV) radiant exposure ( H er ) on changes in the total ozone, cloud cover and aerosol optical depth (AOD) has been studied using solar ultraviolet radiation measurements collected over a 25-year period (1991–2015) at Chilton in the south of England in the UK. The monthly mean datasets of these measures corrected for underlying seasonal variation were analysed. When a single linear trend was fitted over ...

Abstract. The Arctic marine climate system is changing rapidly, which is seen in the warming of the ocean and atmosphere, decline of sea ice cover, increase in river discharge, acidification of the ocean, and changes in marine ecosystems. Socio-economic activities in the coastal and marine Arctic are simultaneously changing. This calls for the establishment of a marine Arctic component of the Pan-Eurasian Experiment (MA-PEEX). There is a need for more in situ observations on the marine atmospher...

Abstract. New particle formation (NPF) consists of two steps: nucleation and subsequent growth. At present, chemical and physical mechanisms that govern these two processes are not well understood. Here, we report initial results obtained from the TANGENT (Tandem Aerosol Nucleation and Growth Environment Tube) experiments. The TANGENT apparatus enables us to study these two processes independently. The present study focuses on the effects of temperature on sulfuric acid nucleation and further gr...

Abstract. An Aerodyne high-resolution time-of-flight aerosol mass spectrometer (HR-ToF-AMS) was deployed along with other online instruments to study the highly time-resolved chemistry and sources of submicron aerosols (PM 1 ) at Waliguan (WLG) Baseline Observatory, a high-altitude (3816 m a.s.l.) background station located at the northeastern edge of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP), during 1–31 July 2017. The average PM 1 mass concentration during this study was 9.1 μg m −3 (ranging from 0.3 to 28....

Abstract. Measurements of aerosol composition and size distributions were taken during the summer of 2013 at the remote island of Lampedusa in the southern central Mediterranean Sea. These measurements were part of the ChArMEx/ADRIMED (Chemistry and Aerosol Mediterranean Experiment/Aerosol Direct Radiative Forcing on the Mediterranean Climate) framework and took place during the Special Observation Period 1a (SOP-1a) from 11 June until 5 July 2013. From compact time-of-flight aerosol mass spectr...
