Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article provides an overview of the chemical composition of clouds and the chemistry occurring within cloud and fog droplets. The processes by which chemical species enter cloud droplets from the gas and aerosol phase are summarized. The most prominent aqueous chemical processes occurring in clouds and fogs are detailed, including sulfur oxidation and complexation, oxidant chemistry, and secondary organic aerosol formation. Some emerging topics like biological materials are introduced. The article closes with a discussion of the role of clouds in atmospheric deposition mechanisms.
