Short summary
This paper discusses errors that arise when nanoparticle growth rates are inferred from aerosol measurements. While our approach involves computation, we cast the problem in a nondimensional form that allows us to explore quite generally the range of errors that can occur. We believe this is a significant conceptual advance that may help to inform uncertainty estimates made from atmospheric data.
