Short summary
This study uses an adiabatic cloud model to simulate the activation of smoke aerosol particles in the Amazon region as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN). The relative importance of variability in hygroscopicity, mixing state, and activation kinetics for the activated fraction and maximum supersaturation is assessed. Our findings on uncertainties and sensitivities provide guidance on appropriate simplifications that can be used for modeling of smoke aerosols within general circulation models.
