Springtime aerosol load as observed from ground-based and airborne lidars over northern Norway

Patrick Chazette, Jean-Christophe Raut, and Julien Totems

Data sets

PARCS, Pollution in the Arctic System Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées 2016 - Service de données OMP (SEDOO)

Short summary
We associate aerosol lidar measurements from the ground level and from an ultralight aircraft to improve our knowledge about aerosols above the Arctic circle; we highlight long-range transport of biomass burning aerosols and characterize the aerosol emissions from a flaring facility. The field experiment was performed as part of the Pollution in the ARCtic System (PARCS) project of the French Arctic Initiative, which took place from 13 to 26 May 2016 in northern Norway (over 70 °N).
