Short summary
Field measurements were conducted at a rural site in central Germany close to dairy farms to investigate if there is a connection between new particle formation and the presence of amines. A variety of trace gases were measured in addition to amines, like sulfuric acid, ammonia and highly oxygenated organic molecules (HOM). The results indicate that amines are very likely involved in the growth of aerosol particles and probably also in the nucleation process, although HOM could be relevant, too.
