Atmospheric ammonia can change the qualities of aerosol particles
For example, the capability of the aerosol particles to scatter light, to absorb moisture or to act as a cloud condensation nuclei can change. These changes can potentially alter the direct or indirect radiative forcing of the aersols, and thus, their impact on climate change.
