Short summary
Extensive measurements of the aerosol and cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) properties in South Asian outflow to the northern Indian Ocean were carried out as a part of the ICARB-2018 experiment during winter. At high supersaturations, most of the aerosols in the South Asian outflow become activated as CCN, whereas the aerosol system over the equatorial Indian Ocean is less CCN efficient even at higher supersaturations.
