Short summary
This study presents the results of an exhaustive characterization of a CRM instrument developed at Mines Douai to measure total OH reactivity in the troposphere. To do so, a suite of laboratory experiments was conducted to assess the different corrections that need to be applied during data processing. The results were then compared to simulations from a 0-D box model, including two different chemical mechanisms, leading to reasonable agreement.
