The Bubble Interfacial Microlayer Sampler (BIMS) was used in the North Atlantic to determine the enrichment factors, relative to sodium and the ocean (EFsea), for a series of trace metals on bubble-derived atmospheric sea salt particles. Mean EFsea values determine for Al, Co, Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb, V, Zn, ranged from 10 to 20 000.-from Authors
