    • An adsorption theory of heterogeneous nucleation of water vapour on nanoparticles 

      Laaksonen A; Malila J (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2016)
      Heterogeneous nucleation of water vapour on insoluble nuclei is a phenomenon that can induce atmospheric water and ice cloud formation. However, modelling of the phenomenon is hampered by the fact that the predictive ...
    • Hygroscopicity of nanoparticles produced from homogeneous nucleation in the CLOUD experiments 

      Kim J; Ahlm L; Yli-Juuti T; Lawler M; Keskinen H; Tröestl J; Schobesberger S; Duplissy J; Amorim A; Bianchi F; Donahue NM; Flagan RC; Hakala J; Heinritzi M; Jokinen T; Kuerten A; Laaksonen A; Lehtipalo K; Miettinen P; Petäjä T; Rissanen MP; Rondo L; Sengupta K; Simon M; Tome A; Williamson C; Wimmer D; Winkler P.M; Ehrhart S; Ye P; Kirkby J; Curtius J; Baltensperger U; Kulmala M; Lehtinen K.E.J; Smith J.N; Riipinen I; Virtanen A (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2016)
      Sulfuric acid, amines and oxidized organics have been found to be important compounds in the nucleation and initial growth of atmospheric particles. Because of the challenges involved in determining the chemical composition ...
    • Increasing large scale windstorm damage in Western, Central and Northern European forests, 1951-2010 

      Gregow H; Laaksonen A; Alper ME (Springer Nature, 2017)
      Using reports of forest losses caused directly by large scale windstorms (or primary damage, PD) from the European forest institute database (comprising 276 PD reports from 1951–2010), total growing stock (TGS) statistics ...
    • Sources of particulate organic nitrates in the boreal forest in Finland 

      Kortelainen A; Hao L; Tiitta P; Jaatinen A; Miettinen P; Kulmala M; Smith JN; Laaksonen A; Worsnop DR; Virtanen A (Boreal Environment Research Publishing Board, 2017)
      Organic nitrates (ON) are known to be present in secondary organic aerosol and act as a reservoir of nitrogen oxides, regulating the local and regional ozone and hydroxyl radical budgets. This work reports ...
