Abstract:

Two techniques for estimating the contribution of continental and marine sources into near-water aerosol composition formation is compared on the base of experimental data on the chemical composition of the water-soluble fraction of the aerosol over the White Sea. It is shown that the random root-mean-square error, obtained by the technique suggested by the authors of this paper, is several times less of those, found by the known techniques. Analysis of the empirical distribution functions of portion factors of the continental ion mass concentration, obtained by different techniques, has shown the suggested technique is better even for estimating neutral states of the atmosphere.
