Obiso, V., M. Pandolfi, M. Ealo, and O. Jorba, 2018: Impact of aerosol microphysical properties on mass scattering cross sections. In Air Pollution Modeling and its Application XXV - ITM 2016. C. Mensink and G. Kallos, Eds., Springer Proceedings in Complexity. Springer International, pp. 599-604, doi:10.1007/978-3-319-57645-9_93.

We assessed the sensitivity of simulated mass scattering cross sections (αλsca [m2/g]) of three aerosol species to different particle microphysical properties and derived constraints on these microphysical properties for the north-western Mediterranean basin, by means of a comparison between code calculations and observations. In particular, we calculated αλsca of mineral dust, organic carbon and sulfate at three wavelengths in the visible range with a T-matrix optical code, considering ±20% perturbations on size distribution, refractive index and mass density, and oblate/prolate spheroids with two different axial ratios as shape perturbations. Then, we compared the simulation results with a set of observed αλsca of mineral dust, aged organics and ammonium sulfate sources provided by the IDAEA-CSIC of Barcelona (Spain) and representative of the north-western Mediterranean basin.
