Monitoring of ultrafine particles renewed in 2005 confirmed the presence of a clearly bell-shaped diurnal behavior of their concentration. An estimate of the rate of new particle formation due to gas-to-particle conversion has been performed based on the diurnal behavior of nanoparticle concentration. Concentrations of the major aerosol precursors have been calculated. Rough estimate of nanoparticle growth rate has been done.
