Short summary
A parameterization for secondary organic aerosol (SOA) production based on the volatility basis set (VBS) approach has been coupled with microphysics and radiative schemes in the WRF-Chem model. The new chemistry was evaluated on a cloud-resolving scale against ground-based and aircraft measurements collected during the IMPACT-EUCAARI campaign, and complemented with satellite data from MODIS. Sensitivity tests have been performed to study the impact of SOA on cloud prediction and development.
