Short summary
The formation of cloud from the condensation of water vapour in the atmosphere on aerosol particles is highly dependent of the chemical properties of the particles. The chemistry is further complicated by the presence of condensible gases in the atmosphere other than water. We provide several methods of including the complicated chemical properties of the aerosol particles and condensing gases into single parameter descriptions, which are suitable for inclusion in large-scale models.
