Short summary
Aerosols have a significant influence on climate changes. Their uncertainties could be substantially reduced if observation data were used. The properties and the DRF of fractionated aerosols in the western Yangtze River Delta are investigated based on measurements. Results reveal the characteristics of the optical properties and DRFs of different types of fractionated aerosols, which can be further used to improve aerosol modelling performance in the eastern regions of China.
