Abstract

Grown nucleated particles >50 nm in diameter are an important source of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) and when the size is >100 nm, they can also have direct influence on the climate. In this study, the nucleation and growth of new particles in the atmosphere in Hong Kong were investigated during dry season (monthly averaged RH -1) was close to the growth rate. The observation of particle shrinkage sheds new light on particle transformation dynamics and it would add to the understanding of particle behavior in the atmosphere.
