Version of Record online: 1 DEC 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2012GL053706

Key Points

  • The surface tension of microscopic droplets can be reduced by 50-75%
  • This requires an SOA film at least 0.8 nm thick to cover the droplet surface
  • Particles composed of >80% surfactant could have increased CCN activity
