accumulation mode

Aerosol particles in the size range 0.5–2 μm in diameter.

The name arises from the fact that particles in this size range are aerodynamically stable and do not settle out, nor do they agglomerate to form larger particles; thus they tend to accumulate in the atmosphere.
See also agglomeration.
