Production and the subsequent development of sulfur-derived particles in the marine boundary layer have been of great interest due to their potential role in modifying the radiative properties of marine stratiform clouds. In this work these phenomena were studied using a dynamic air parcel model, with the emphasis placed on examining how the boundary layer dynamics affects the system. Simulations suggest that a homogeneous or steady boundary layer assumption may lead to a considerable underestimation of the number of nuclei formed. -from Authors
