Short summary
To obtain knowledge about sea-salt chemistry in polar regions, we made simultaneous measurements and sampling of aerosols, frost flowers, and brine around northwestern Greenland during winter–spring. Our results show sea-salt enrichment in frost flowers and snow. Also, the fractionated sea-salt particles were suspended in the atmosphere over sea-ice areas. From the field evidence and results from earlier studies, we propose and describe sea-salt cycles in seasonal sea-ice areas.
