Short summary
Condensing atmospheric chemical species and/or their processes in the city centre seem to contribute equally to new particle formation and particle growth. In the near-city background, however, chemical compounds and their processes power particle growth more than particle formation. There is much indirect evidence that chemical species other than H2SO4 largely influence the particle growth and possibly the atmosphere.
