Paper Abstract

The mass concentrations of the dry basis of aerosol and Black Carbon (November 2013 – December 2015) and the volume particle size distributions (2015) measured in the monitoring mode under background conditions (Fonovaya (Background) Observatory, 60 km west of Tomsk) and under urban conditions (Akademgorodok District of Tomsk) have been used to determine the average seasonal contribution of the city to the aerosol characteristics. It has been found that the annual profile of the seasonal average city contribution to the aerosol and Black Carbon (BC) contents, as well as the volume fill factor of the submicron aerosol, has a maximum in winter and a minimum in summer. In the coarse size range, the maximal excess of the volume fill factor was observed in the spring period. The observed differences between the city and the background conditions for the relative content of Black Carbon in aerosol and the absorption coefficient of the particulate matter were largest in summer and smallest in winter. Under the background conditions, the annual behavior had an untypical feature, namely, the seasonal average aerosol concentrations in summer exceeded the values obtained for the spring and autumn seasons. Analytical parameterization of the annual profile of monthly average difference of the urban and background mass concentrations of aerosol and Black Carbon in the form of parabolic dependence has been proposed.
