Figure 1 Residence times of tropospheric aerosols as a function of" particle radius Dp/2. I, small atmospheric ions; A, so-called Aitken particles, radii 0,001 to 0.1 jim, residence time estimated from geographical distributions; C, residence time calculated based on Brownian coagulation of particles; R. radioactivity; R precipitation removal; F, sedimentation. The three curves shown correspond to the three altitude levels indicated based on F.q. (5). Adapted from Jaenicke (I98S).
