Paper Abstract

Salt aerosols will undergo deliquescence as humidity is increased. This deliquescent transition dramatically affects the ability of aerosols to extinguish light. It is known that the relative humidity is very high in the viscous sublayer at the ocean surface (~98%) but decreases to an average of 80% in the surface layer. We present results of an investigation of the impact of inclusions on the deliquescence point and correlated optical properties of salt aerosols.
