Short summary
We analyze wintertime aerosol measurements from the central Chilean Pacific coast. The averaged aerosol particle concentration at our site (D > 0.01 μm) is larger than at a site on the Californian Pacific coast. Additionally, size distributions sampled during intervals of onshore flow are used to parameterize aerosol properties relevant to cloud and precipitation processes. We anticipate that modeling of wintertime Chilean coastal rain events will benefit from the parameterizations we present.
