Abstract: In the summers of 2001 and 2002, particle formation and growth were observed at a forest ecosystem research site in the “Fichtelgebirge” mountain range in NE Bavaria, Germany. Atmospheric nucleation events, identified through detailed analysis of the time evolution of submicron particle size distributions, differed considerably from nonevent days with respect to ultrafine particle concentrations and meteorological parameters. Particle diameter growth rates, as quantified through the geometric mean diameter de…
