Parameter mass_​fraction_​of_​black_​carbon_​dry_​aerosol_​in_​air

Properties

Properties of the parameter mass_​fraction_​of_​black_​carbon_​dry_​aerosol_​in_​air
Name mass_fraction_of_black_carbon_dry_aerosol_in_air
Description Mass fraction is used in the construction mass_fraction_of_X_in_Y, where X is a material constituent of Y. It means the ratio of the mass of X to the mass of Y (including X). "Aerosol" means the suspended liquid or solid particles in air (except cloud droplets). Aerosol takes up ambient water (a process known as hygroscopic growth) depending on the relative humidity and the composition of the aerosol. "Dry aerosol" means aerosol without water. Black carbon aerosol is composed of elemental carbon. It is strongly light absorbing.
