Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Fine atmospheric aerosol collected at the Junfraujoch was studied to determine the contribution of organic substances to aerosol loading, and to conduct physico-chemical characterization of the organic component. The results indicate that: the mass of organic substances is twice that of ammonium sulphate; half of the organic aerosol component is water-soluble; and most of the carbon component is associated with fine particles.
