Abstract

All non-gaseous particles suspended in the atmosphere are called aerosols. Aerosols are mainly composed of droplets and crystals but also organic matter particles and large ions. These constituents can be both natural and anthropogenic, such as liquid seawater drops, dry sea salt particles, dust transport from the deserts by wind, as well as particles resulting from human activities related to industrial processes and agriculture, volcanic eruptions and meteorite destruction in the atmosphere. Particles forming aerosols attain sizes from nanometres to several micrometres.
