Particles emitted from ship engines worsen the air quality in port cities and are estimated to cause 60 000 premature deaths annually (Corbett et al., 2007). The particles emitted from marine traffic may participate in cloud formation and be a source of black carbon in close vicinity of the arctic glaciers (eg. Eyring et al., 2010; Winther et al., 2014). Due to tightening regulation of fuel sulfur content (MARPOL Annex VI), new fuels with lower sulfur contents are emerging. In this study, number emissions and the characteristics of primary particles emitted from a 1.6 MW marine diesel engine were investigated when using four marine fuels with different properties.
