Opis: Monoterpenes and isoprene are important constituents of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) due to their high reactivity and participation in ozone and secondary aerosol formation. The current work focuses on the results of a 13-month intensive campaign of high resolution time-resolved measurements of these compounds, at an urban background site in Athens, Greece. On an annual basis, monoterpenes (α-pinene and limonene) surpass the isoprene levels presenting mean values of 0.70 ± 0.83 μg m−3, 0.33 ± 0.78 μg m−3 and 0.19 ± 0.36 μg m−3, respectively. The large standard deviation highlights the significant diurnal and day-to-day variability. Isoprene presents a typical seasonal cycle, with a photochemically induced summer-time maximum. Enhanced noon levels are observed during summer, whereas a morning peak in the autumn and winter profiles occurs, despite the generally low levels encountered during these seasons. The monoterpenes deviate from the expected biogenic pattern, presenting higher mean levels during the cold period and a night-to-early morning enhancement strongly related to local anthropogenic tracers such as BC, CO, NO or toluene, as well as increased levels under wind speeds lower than 3 m s−1. Estimations of the anthropogenic and biogenic fractions based on the enhancement ratios of α-pinene versus a variety of anthropogenic tracers, demonstrate a clear dominance of the anthropogenic sources in all studied seasons. Simultaneously, the biogenic fraction increased during summer relative to winter by more than 10 times. Both α-pinene and limonene significantly contribute to locally formed secondary organic aerosol (SOA), determined by means of an ACSM, accounting for at least 22% and 13% of their levels in summer and winter respectively. Additionally, monoterpenes and isoprene contribute 6% to the observed oxidants levels (O3 + NOx) during summer.

Substantial brown carbon emissions from wintertime residential wood burning over France

Opis: Brown carbon (BrC) is known to absorb light at subvisible wavelengths but its optical properties and sources are still poorly documented, leading to large uncertainties in climate studies. Here, we show its major wintertime contribution to total aerosol absorption at 370 nm (18–42%) at 9 different French sites. Moreover, an excellent correlation with levoglucosan (r2 = 0.9 and slope = 22.2 at 370 nm), suggesting important contribution of wood burning emissions to ambient BrC aerosols in France. At all sites, BrC peaks were mainly observed during late evening, linking to local intense residential wood burning during this time period. Furthermore, the geographic origin analysis also highlighted the high potential contribution of local and/or small-regional emissions to BrC. Focusing on the Paris region, twice higher BrC mass absorption efficiency value was obtained for less oxidized biomass burning organic aerosols (BBOA) compared to more oxidized BBOA (e.g., about 4.9 ± 0.2 vs. 2.0 ± 0.1 m2 g−1, respectively, at 370 nm). Finally, the BBOA direct radiative effect was found to be 40% higher when these two BBOA fractions are treated as light-absorbing species, compared to the non-absorbing BBOA scenario.
