Short summary
The addition of NO2 to atmospheric particle formation simulations based on ozone reactions with tree-emitted monoterpenes results in changing particle composition and mass yields, with effects that vary across the range of studied monoterpenes. For alpha-pinene, a dominantly emitted terpene in the United States, NO2 addition suppresses particle formation, while for others, particle yields remain high.
