Short summary
The springtime organic aerosol (OA) concentrations in the Guanzhong Basin, China are simulated using the WRF-Chem model with two secondary OA (SOA) modules. Model results are verified with near-surface observations. The non-traditional SOA module significantly improves SOA simulation. Oxidation and partitioning of primary OAs is the most important pathway in SOA formation. Residential emissions are the dominant anthropogenic OA source.
