Short summary
Oligomerization is one of the most important identified processes of secondary organic aerosol evolution. We have simulated the formation of oligomers from biogenic precursors, using two different parameterizations implemented in the air quality model CHIMERE. This study shows that oligomer concentration fields are quite sensitive to the way the competition between local formation, evaporation and transport is restituted. The benefits and disadvantages of each approach are discussed in details.
