Photolysis of Organic Aerosols

A multitude of recent atmospheric observations show that organic aerosols are ubiquitous and often more abundant than other particles such as sulfate, nitrate, soot, and dust.  These large amounts of organic particles contribute to the health impacts of air pollution, to regional visibility reductions, to both cooling and warming tendencies of radiative forcing, and to modified cloud properties and precipitation patterns.  Uncertainties remain in all aspect of their lifecycle, i.e., their formation, transformations and properties, and especially their removal.
