Short summary
We report the direct field measurement of size-resolved mixing state, Eabs, and aerosol single-scattering albedo (SSA) at λ = 532 nm at a rural site in east China in summer. Parameterization of Eabs and SSA captures much of the influence of black carbon (BC) coating and particle absorption. The results show that absorption amplification depends on the coating thickness and the absorption of coating materials, and photochemistry plays role in modifying the absorption of BC-containing particles.
