Inhomogeneities arising from inhibition of water diffusion in glassy atmospheric aerosol proxies

D.L. Bones, J.P. Reid, D.M. Lienhard and U.K. Krieger

Relative shifts in the resonant modes arising from trapped aqueous organic particles are used to investigate water uptake and evaporation events on glassy aerosol particles.  A comparison of simulated and experimentally observed resonant mode shifts suggests that the morphology of a particle during a water uptake event can be represented as a core-shell structure.
