Abstract

Aerosol sampling during photochemically active times across the Los Angeles Basin has provided evidence of secondary formation of organic aerosol from gas-phase precursors at midday. Ambient organic carbon/elemental carbon ratios exceeded the estimated ratio of organic carbon/elemental carbon in primary source emissions on most sampling days at all sites. Secondary organic aerosol appears to have contributed roughly half of the organic aerosol in Pasadena during midday summer conditions. -from Authors
