Application of a thin-window detector in electron microprobe analysis allows detecting low-Z elements, like carbon, nitrogen en oxygen. This allows studying the speciation of nutrients and metals in individual marine aerosol particles. Before such a new approach can be used in environmental research, much methodological work has to be done, e.g. concerning the quantitative nature of the analyses
