Short summary
Aerosol particles collected during the ASCOS expedition in the high Arctic in summer 2008 were examined with electron microscopy and elemental dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The majority of particles consisted of marine gel matter accompanied by minor fractions of ammonium (bi)sulfate and internally mixed sulfur containing particles. Depending on their morphology, marine gel particles showed prevalence for either the ions Na+/K+ or Ca2+/Mg2+.
