The research on new particle formation (NPF) is of great importance considering its vital role in modulating the cloud condensation nuclei. While NPF has been widely studied, the authors primarily focus on the development of aerosol size distribution among different altitudes as well as the impact of aerosol-radiation on NPF. The analysis angle is unique and the manuscript is well written. I have a few comments prior to the acceptance of the manuscript for publication.
Line 120: Some changes were made in the source code of the TUV model so that the model can calculate the J(NO2) and J(O1D) profiles
A bit more information is useful. For instance, a few more words on what major changes have been made.
Line 123: Altitude
Please revise to altitudes
Line 132 (Line 193; 205;304): Transportation
Please revise to transport.
Line 144 for different altitudes and a different time
Please revise to for different altitudes and time
Line 159 These particles were still not well mixed at the range between 0 and 240 m until 11:20.
From Fig. 2, it does not seem to show the mixing at 11:20. Is it something not shown in the figure?
Line 183 (Line 479;295) different times
Please revise to: different time
Line 185: The ratio on the ground surface decreased
It is not clear that the ground decreased compared to ??
Line 196 later
Should be late; if the authors only want to emphasize afternoon, the word "later" should be removed.
The authors list the altitude of boundary layer height of either 1000 or 500 meters. Please clarify whether these heights are the exact boundary layer heights or approximate altitude? Or they represent a range, i.e., less than 1000 meters?
