Short summary
We have deployed a single particle soot photometer (SP2) to characterize black carbon (BC) aerosols near industrial sources in Japan in the early summer of 2014 and at a remote island in the spring of 2015. The observed changes in the SP2-derived size distributions and mixing state of BC-containing particles with air mass transport are connected to meteorological variability (transport pathways and air mass histories) in spring in east Asia.
