Short summary
This paper focuses on the seasonal variation in parameters related to particle formation (e.g., occurrence, formation rate, growth rate, condensation sink and source rate of condensable vapor) at King Sejong Station in the Antarctic Peninsula from March 2009 to December 2016. The contribution of particle formation to cloud condensation nuclei concentration (CCN) is also investigated. This study is the first to report the characteristics of new particle formation (NPF) in the Antarctic Peninsula.
