The mass loadings of nitrate, sulphate, and ammonium have been determined using both volatility and mass spectrometry techniques for a flight of the FAAM BAE-146 research aircraft that occurred during the 2004 ADRIEX project. This study has shown that there is excellent agreement between the number concentration spectra derived from internally and externally mounted instrumentation and that the mass loadings derived from volatility analysis and directly from an aerosol mass spectrometer show a close correlation. Partitioning of the various species with size within the aerosol population was also observed and the mixing state assessed. Copyright © 2007 Royal Meteorological Society.
