Short summary
We report size-dependent water uptake by fresh Indonesian peat burning particles and discuss relationship between water uptake and chemical characteristics. Fresh peat burning particles are almost non-hygroscopic, as determined by both the water-soluble organic fraction and the difference in κ of slightly and highly water-soluble fractions. This work experimentally validates the reference for κ of OA-dominated particles, thus contributing to more accurate estimation of aerosol climate impacts.
