Data sets

Cloud condensation nuclei and hygroscopic growth measurement at Mace Head from 2009 to 2010 Wei Xu, Kirsten Fossum, Darius Ceburnis, Jurgita Ovadnevaite, and Colin O'Dowd

Short summary
Cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) are an important topic in atmospheric studies, especially for evaluating the climate impact of aerosol. Here in this study, CCN closure is studied by using chemical composition based on an aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS) and hygroscopicity growth measurements based on a humidified tandem differential mobility analyzer (HTDMA) at the Mace Head atmospheric research station.
