Paper Abstract

The work reports the results of the measurements of particulate matter (PM), organic (OC) and elemental (EC) carbon mass concentrations, and carbon isotope composition (δ13С) in atmospheric aerosol sampled along the route of the research vessel “Academician Mstislav Keldysh” (71 voyage). The measurements were carried out over the Baltic Sea – the North Sea – the North Atlantic – the Norwegian Sea – the Barents Sea from June to August 2018. The increased OC, EC concentrations and the high δ13С value in the samples collected off the coast of Greenland are shown to be not due to marine origin, but due to the transfer of atmospheric aerosol formed in Canada during biomass burning (forest fires).
