Atmospheric Aerosols Studies over Arctic: Initiatives for Long Term Data and Preliminary Results

Introduction Polar regions are expected to provide an early signal of global warming and change in the Earth’s climate system, due to feedback effects associated with the high albedo of snow and ice (Alterskjaer et al., 2010; Shindell, 2008; Wang and Key, 2005; Chaubey et al., 2010). Although snow and ice albedo feedbacks are the key concern in the polar region, distribution of aerosols in the atmosphere is also an important factor in controlling the Earth’s radiation budget and affecting snow and...
