Short summary
Aerosols particles reach via long-range transport the high Arctic and have significant impacts on Arctic climate. This article demonstrates the comparison of measured and modeled aerosol mass concentrations for black carbon and sulfate particles at a high Arctic site. Based on the findings aging processes during transport seem to prolong the lifetimes of the two species and favor the possibility for their transport to the high Arctic.
