About this collection

Atmospheric surfaces are ubiquitous on all scales ranging from nanometer scale, such as the surfaces of particles, cloud droplets and ice crystals, to global scale including marine and terrestrial surfaces. This Themed Issue, Edited by ESPI Associate Editor Marianne Glasius (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Guest Editors Merete Bilde (Aarhus University, Denmark) Neil Donahue (Carnegie Mellon University, USA) and Miriam Freedman (Pennsylvania State University, USA) showcases some of the latest research in this area from a variety of leading groups. We hope you enjoy reading the papers in this collection.
