Short summary
Particle size distributions from four summer cruises of the Swedish icebreaker Oden were combined with back trajectories and pack ice information in a cluster algorithm to investigate source areas and aerosol formation in the central Arctic. Five source regions and three aerosol types resulted. Long travel times over ice, combined with more open water conditions shortly before air mass arrival, seem to control the formation of ultrafine particles over the central Arctic pack ice.
