Paper Abstract

Lately the investigations of the Arctic atmospheric aerosol are actively carried out. It is connected, in the first place, with the long-range transport of anthropogenic pollutants to the Arctic from the Middle latitudes and their accumulation in the Arctic atmosphere during winter-spring season. The importance of such investigations is caused by possible ecological and, in particular, climatic effects of pollution accumulation in the Arctic atmosphere. In the present work the results of the investigations carried out by the Institute of Atmospheric Physics in some regions of the Arctic (Severenaya Zemlya, the Wrangel Island, North Atlantic) in 1984-91 are summarized. We had studied the element composition of the Arctic aerosol (including element carbon) and possible pathways of the aerosol transport to the observation points.
