Characterization of stratospheric liquid ternary solution (LTS) aerosol is studied as an inverse problem in retrieving particle volume size distribution and chemical composition of ternary droplets using the extinction coefficient over wavelengths of 3 to 12 mm. The retrieval method comprises a constrained, weighted least squares minimization procedure between measured and modeled spectra. The constraints restrict the first derivative of the particle size distribution with respect to particle size and res…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
