Vertical profiles of aerosol and black carbon in the Arctic: a seasonal phenomenology along 2 years (2011–2012) of field campaigns

Luca Ferrero et al.

Data sets

Basic and other measurements of radiation at station Ny-Ålesund M. Maturilli

Continuous meteorological observations at station Ny-Ålesund M. Maturilli, A. Herber, and G. König-Langlo

Short summary
This study reports results from systematic vertical aerosol profiles measured in the Arctic using a tethered balloon platform. The collected data allowed for finding common rules of aerosol behavior along height and seasons. Transport events, secondary aerosol formation and ship impact are examples of the issues investigated along height. The importance of these issues is related to their climatic implications in reference to the aerosol direct and indirect effects in the Arctic atmosphere.
