Conference paper

A Hygroscopic Tandem Differential Mobility Analyser (H-TDMA) has been used in several field campaigns over the about last 25 years. The investigations were focused on the solubility and state of mixing of atmospheric aerosols. This paper gives a summary of the results of particle hygroscopic properties from different measurement sites. The data can be classified in hygroscopic growth modes indicating the origin and processes of the aerosol particles

Keywords Atmospheric aerosols, hygroscopicity, relative humidity, H-TDMA
