Abstract : Samples of maritime light-scattering aerosols taken at sea in the vicinity of the Virgin Islands in April, July and September of 1970 proved to contain 35% organic material, showed little response to changes in humidity, and gave evidence of containing the organic fraction of the aerosol as a protective coating on the rest of the particulate material. There was a significant difference in the data taken in the different months which may indicate a seasonal difference. (Author)
