Multiphase buffering by ammonia explains wide range of atmospheric aerosol acidity — ScienceDaily

Aerosols are tiny solid or liquid particles suspended in the air. They influence the climate by absorbing or scattering sunlight and serving as cloud condensation nuclei. Moreover, they can impact human well-being through adverse health effects of fine particulate matter. A large fraction of particulate matter consists of nitrate, sulfate, and ammonium ions. The formation […]
