Short summary
We have performed laboratory experiments examining a large set of known bacterial, fungal and pollen species using a Wideband Integrated Bioaerosol Sensor (WIBS). The instrumental response is shown to be sufficiently distinct for these classes of particles to distinguish between them, and this library will provide a framework for interpretation of UV-induced fluorescence measurements of atmospheric bioaerosol. Atmospheric implications and instrumental considerations are discussed.
