Abstract

Abstract This study shows the results of concentration measurements of large particles ( D ⩾0.3 μm), CCN and Aitken nuclei (CN) in two different sites of the Ivory Coast—Lamto and Abidjan—during the middle of the dry season. A comparison is established over a period of 24 h; it clearly indicates that the aerosol is the same in the two stations if we consider the large particles and nuclei activated at 0.25% supersaturation. However, it is more abundant in smaller panicles in the Abidjan area, mainly in the early morning, and its emission is reinforced during the rains of the monsoon.
