Short summary
Enhanced tropospheric trace gases (e.g. pollutants) were measured in situ in the lowermost stratosphere over Northern Europe on 26 September 2012 during the TACTS aircraft campaign. We found that the combination of rapid uplift by a typhoon and eastward eddy shedding from the Asian monsoon anticyclone is a novel fast transport pathway that may carry boundary emissions from Southeast Asia/western Pacific within approximately 5 weeks to the lowermost stratosphere in Northern Europe.
