The remaining terms of the equation then relate the nucleation rate to the absolute bulk temperature [T.sub.b], the crystal surface energy a and the supersaturation ratio S (= [C.sub.b]/[C.sub.s]), which is a measure of the crystallizing salt concentration in the bulk solution at a given temperature.

Crystal nucleation and growth on pyrolyzed and control surfaces were monitored at supersaturations ([omega]) over the range of ([omega]) = 10.7 to 52.5.
Homogeneous nucleation in aqueous aerosol particles at high supersaturations is a plausible formation pathway that explains the high ice particle complexity observed in this case.
It is encouraging that all three [N.sub.c] estimates have similar annual-mean values and that the [N.sub.c] cycle agrees qualitatively with the annual cycle of CCN concentration, especially at low supersaturations (Fig.
