Short summary
An integrated observation on aerosol aminiums over a coastal city in eastern China, a nearby island and the surrounding marginal seas was conducted. Aminium concentrations exhibited significant spatiotemporal variation, which is dependent on their sources and environmental factors, including boundary layer height, temperature, atmospheric oxidizing capacity and relative humidity. The contributions of terrestrial and marine sources to aminiums over coastal areas were quantitatively calculated.
