Transport of short-lived pollutants into the Arctic, and why it is important for climate

We will present case studies as well as climatologies of air pollution transport into the Arctic and discuss its potential role for climate change in the Arctic. In particular, we will present two cases of transport of smoke from biomass burning events, where we can show that not only the concentrations of many short-lived pollutants in the air were enhanced but that the albedo of the snow was also affected by the deposition of soot. The presentation will be based on three recent papers (1, 2, 3).
