Zusammenfassung
In this study we show how size-resolved measurements of aerosol particles and cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) can be used to characterize the supersaturation of water vapor in a cloud. The method was developed and applied during the ACRIDICON-Zugspitze campaign (17 September to 4 October 2012) at the high-Alpine research station Schneefernerhaus (German Alps, 2650ma.s.l.). Number size distributions of total and interstitial aerosol particles were measured with a scanning mobility particle sizer (SMPS), and size-resolved CCN efficiency spectra were recorded with a CCN counter system operated at different supersaturation levels. During the evolution of a cloud, aerosol particles are exposed to different supersaturation levels. We outline and compare different estimates for the lower and upper bounds (Slow, Shigh) and the average value (S-avg) of peak supersaturation encountered by the particles in the cloud. A major advantage of the derivation of Slow and S-avg from size-resolved CCN efficiency spectra is that it does not require the specific knowledge or assumptions about aerosol hygroscopicity that are needed to derive estimates of S-low, S-high, and S-avg from aerosol size distribution data. For the investigated cloud event, we derived S-low approximate to 0.07-0.25 %, S-high approximate to 0.86-1.31% and S-avg approximate to 0.42-0.68 %.
