Short summary
Aerosol nucleation exerts important influences on the climate, hydrological cycle, and air quality. We have developed an advanced physical–chemical model that describes ion-induced and neutral nucleation involving ammonia, sulfuric acid, and water vapors. The model is shown to reproduce laboratory measurements taken under a wide range of conditions, offers physiochemical insights into the ternary nucleation process, and provides an accurate approach to calculate ternary rate in the atmosphere.
