The paper “Research on aerosol sources and chemical composition: Past, current and emerging issues” provide a quantitative and predictive understanding of atmospheric aerosols, beginning with a historical perspective on the scientific questions regarding atmospheric aerosols over the past centuries, followed by a description of the distribution, sources, transformation processes, and chemical and physical properties as they are currently understood. This review outlines the major open questions and suggestions for future research priorities to narrow the gap between the present understanding of the contribution of both anthropogenic and biogenic aerosols to radiative forcing resulting from the spatial non-uniformity, intermittency of sources, unresolved composition and reactivity.
