Atmospheric & Environmental Chemistry Seminar

Professor Murray Johnston, University of Delaware, will present "Going from Molecules to CCN: How Do Airborne Nanoparticles Grow?".

Airborne nanoparticles strongly influence climate and human health. Understanding these impacts requires knowledge of how particles form and grow. This presentation will draw from recent ambient measurements and laboratory studies by our group that help elucidate chemical mechanisms of nanoparticle growth from small molecular clusters to a particle that is large enough to serve as a seed for cloud droplet formation. Current work is focused on multiphase chemistry and how its contribution relative to other growth mechanisms changes with particle size and aerosol volume-to- surface-area ratio.
