Short summary
A detailed aqueous phase mechanism CLEPS 1.1 is coupled with warm microphysics including activation of aerosol particles into cloud droplets. Simulated aqueous concentrations of carboxylic acids are close to the long-term measurements conducted at Puy de Dôme (France). Sensitivity tests show that formic and acetic acids mainly originate from the gas phase with highly variable aqueous-phase reactivity depending on cloud pH, while C3–C4 carboxylic acids mainly originate from the particulate phase.
