Annual concentrations of ice nucleating particles at Arctic station Ny-Ålesund H. Wex, L. Huang, R. Sheesley, R. Bossi, and R. Traversi

Short summary
This study aims to add to the still scant ice-nucleating particle (INP) observations in the Arctic environment, investigating INP concentrations and potential sources, during spring and summertime, at the ground-level site of GVB. The lack of a clear concentration seasonal trend, in contrast with previous works, shows an important interannual variability of Arctic INP sources, which may be both terrestrial and marine, outside the Arctic haze period.
