in atmospheric chemistry
Fine solid particles (aerosol), predominantly less than 1 µm in diameter, which result from the condensation of vapour from some types of chemical reaction. Usually this is formed from the gaseous state generally after volatilization from melted substances and often accompanied by chemical reactions such as oxidation.
