Short summary
We discuss the spatiotemporal variations in aerosol characteristics, measured along the Northern Sea Route in RV Akademik Fedorov and RV Professor Khljustin cruises. The variability ranges of the average aerosol parameters in separate seas and regions were from 2.5 to 24cm-3 for number concentration of particles; from 830 to 2970ngm-3 for aerosol mass concentrations; from 20 to 150ngm-3 for black carbon mass concentrations; and from 0.03 to 0.19 for aerosol optical depth (0.5um).
