Abstract
Specific biochemical influences on sea spray aerosol (SSA) are not well characterized and are vital to understanding the complex and variable chemical composition and atmospheric properties of SSA. Several studies reported in this thesis explore how microorganisms affect SSA both by examining their metabolic products in seawater and how they transfer from the seawater to aerosol, as well as the impacts of airborne microbes on SSA properties. To investigate the influence of microbial metabolism on aerosol composition, direct measurements of aerosols revealed a correlation between marine bacteria in seawater and the production of gas-phase even-chain (C:2, C:4) al...
