J. Pudykiewicz has pointed out that the coagulation process is incorrectly incorporated in the four-dimensional continuity equation for the number density of the aerosol, Eq. (1), of Li and Boer (2000). A correct version retains its form as
i1520-0469-59-19-2883-eq1
but with variables defined throughout as V, the velocity of the particles; g = gc (rather than gc + ga), the growth rate due to condensation only; and q = qn + qa, the source/sink of particles via nucleation and coagulation, respectively. The source/sink of particles due to the coagulation process, qa, is now included on the right-hand side of (1) and also replaces the left-hand side of (8).

The results of the paper are unaffected, however, since we consider only those cases where coagulation plays a negligible role whence g = gc and q = qn.

We appreciate Dr. Pudykiewicz's corrections to this paper very much.
