Funding Information:
This research has been supported by the NOAA Climate Program Office, NA16OAR4310112 for T. S. Carter, C. L. Heald, and J. H. Kroll; NA16OAR4310111 for C. D. Cappa; and NA17OAR4310010 for L. A. Garofalo, E. J. T. Levin, D. K. Farmer and by NSF, #AGS‐1650786 for E. J. T. Levin; #AGS‐1650275 for L. Hu; and #AGS‐1650493 for S. M. Murphy and R. P. Pokhrel. We acknowledge the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) (grant NE/L013479/1) for funding the measurements performed during CLARIFY‐2017. We thank everyone involved in the planning and execution of the CLARIFY‐2017 project. The BAe‐146‐301 atmospheric research aircraft was flown by Airtask and managed by the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM), which is a joint entity of NERC and the Met Office. The authors thank Armin Wisthaler and Tomas Mikoviny for acetonitrile measurements from both ARCTAS and DC3, Wade Permar for acetonitrile measurements during WE‐CAN, and Paul DeMott and Sonia Kreidenweis for carbonaceous aerosol mass concentration measurements during WE‐CAN. We thank James Podolske and Steven Howell for measurements during ORACLES. We acknowledge data from the IMPROVE network. IMPROVE is a collaborative association of state, tribal, and federal agencies and international partners. The US Environmental Protection Agency is the primary funding source, with contracting and research support from the National Park Service. The Air Quality Group at the University of California, Davis, is the central analytical laboratory, with ion analysis provided by Research Triangle Institute and carbon analysis provided by Desert Research Institute.
