Abstract: Abstract: Atmospheric particles (aerosols) consist of a mixture of inorganic and organic species. The organic portion of the aerosol can be half or more of its mass. In this talk, Prof John Seinfeld from California Institute of Technology explores the origin of the organic portion of atmospheric aerosols, especially that produced from the oxidation of gas-phase hydrocarbons, so-called Secondary Organic Aerosol. Results of laboratory chamber experiments that represent atmospheric processes are presented together with estimates of the global source of organic aerosols.
