Short summary
Laboratory chamber studies were conducted to investigate the formation of secondary organic aerosol from β-pinene oxidation by nitrate radicals. These experiments probed the effects of peroxy radical fate and relative humidity on the mass and chemical composition of secondary organic aerosol formed from nighttime chemistry. Results from this study were used to evaluate the contributions of NO3+monoterpene reaction to ambient organic aerosol recently measured in the southeastern United States.
