Information - AS3.20 Biogenic terpenes: Emissions and atmospheric particle formation
Biogenic terpenes are believed to be significant components of atmospheric carbon cycling and affect atmospheric chemistry especially in remote areas. Because of their reactivity they are capable to form reactive and low volatile organic compounds, which will subsequently partition between gas and aerosol phase and thus affect aerosol related processes and the Earths radiation budget. They might even be capable to initiate atmospheric new particle formation. This session is meant to focus not only on monoterpene related processes but also on recent advances regarding sesquiterpenes, which are not yet included in any carbon budget and approximated to contribute significantly to aerosol nucleation and mass formation. We kindly invite interested scientists to discuss latest achievements with respect to terpene emissions, atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric aerosol processes.
