Formation, processes and effects of atmospheric aerosol in urban environment

  • Description of the research topic

    Contribution of atmospheric nucleation to particle number concentrations are substantial or determinant in the global troposphere. Moreover, their contribution to the number of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) can be 50% or even more under supersaturations encountered in the atmosphere, which links the phenomenon to climate system, and emphasizes its global relevance. Particle concentrations from nucleation are also important when compared to (primary) particles emitted by their dominant source in cities, namely by road vehicles with internal combustion engines. These results jointly suggest that nucleated and grown particles in cities can influence not only the urban climate but can contribute to the public’s excess health risk from particle number exposures.
