Arctic black carbon during PAMARCMiP 2018 and previous aircraft experiments in spring
4 November 2021
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. The authors' observations provide a bases to evaluate numerical model simulations that assess the BC radiative effects in the Arctic spring.
