Aerosol particles affect the Earth's radiation balance in two ways: through scattering and absorbing light (direct effect) and by acting as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN). In this study, a new data set focusing on marine aerosol size distributions and its chemical composition is presented. Simultaneous measurements of and correlations between CCN concentrations and sulphate over an unprecedented sulphate range are presented. The results are compared with available data sets in literature.
