VILMA - Virtual laboratory for molecular level atmospheric transformations
Understanding the formation of atmospheric aerosol is vital, as they help to cool the climate but also causes increased mortality through bad air quality. A fundamental problem in predicting aerosol formation is the huge number of compounds, reactions and processes involved and the complexity of the participating compounds.
