These tables document the coefficients (fit parameters) which describe how sulfate aerosols grow with relative humidity (geometric radius and standard deviation) and the dependence of the optical properties (mass extinction efficiency, asymmetry parameter and single scattering coalbedo) on relative humidity. Results are tabulated for sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and ammonium sulfate ((NH4)2SO4)

Coefficients used in equations (1), (2), (4), (5) and (6):
