Arctic black carbon during PAMARCMiP 2018 and previous aircraft experiments in spring

Sho Ohata et al.

Data sets

Number concentrations, mass concentrations, mass-averaged diameters, and median shell-to-core ratios of black carbon aerosols obtained by aircraft measurements during the PAMARCMiP 2018 S. Ohata, A. Yoshida, N. Moteki, and M. Koike

Short summary
Vertical profiles of black carbon (BC) in the Arctic were measured during the PAMARCMiP aircraft-based experiment in spring 2018 and compared with those observed during previous aircraft campaigns in 2008, 2010, and 2015. Their differences were explained primarily by the year-to-year variation of biomass burning activities in northern midlatitudes over Eurasia. Our observations provide a bases to evaluate numerical model simulations that assess the BC radiative effects in the Arctic spring.
