  1. Open ocean nucleation&Growth rates during coastal new particle formationMAP meeting, Dublin 3.12.2008 M. Ehn, T. Petäjä, M. Vana, P. Aalto, G. de Leeuw, D. Ceburnis, C. O'Dowd and M. Kulmala

  2. Three days during leg 2

  3. Analysis

  4. …and then to Mace Head

  5. Example of analysis: 30.05.2006 • Wind direction 300 degrees • Mode peak at ~7 nm • Wind speed determines flight time from coast line

  6. Coastal particle formation

  7. Results grouped by wind direction

  8. Results grouped by time (hours) after low tide

  9. Results • Wind directions between 260 and 340 degrees • Times between 2 h before and 4 h after low tide r2 = 0.52 r2 = 0.36

  10. Growth rates for fits

  11. Results • HYSPLIT 96 hour back-trajectories and current wind direction measured on the ship for 26 June • Every marker corresponds to one hour • Travel time for the air mass from the coast roughly 5 h

  12. Marine particle formation growth rates Average GR = 3.2 nm /h Additionally the following growth during evening/night from 22 -> 30 nm in Mace Head in 8 hours gives GR = 1 nm /h
