The work presents concentrations of elemental carbon (ÅÑ) in atmospheric aerosol samples, collected on fibreglass aerosol filters in the Novosibirsk region, in the northwest of the Siberian region, and in the White Sea Region from 1999 to 2015 and measured by the method of reaction gas chromatography. The year-to-year progress, seasonal and daily variations of EC concentration at observation sites, as well as the influence of distant wood fires on the content of EC in the sites with different degrees of anthropogenic stress. The HYSPLIT model is used to estimate the sources of the formation of EC-containing aerosols.

    We use the Global Modeling Initiative (GMI) modeling framework to assess the utility of cosmogenic beryllium-7 (7Be), a natural aerosol tracer, for evaluating cross-tropopause transport in global models. The GMI chemical transport model (CTM) was used to simulate atmospheric 7Be distributions...

    It is often implicitly assumed that over suitably long periods the mean of observations and models should be comparable, even if they have different temporal sampling. We assess the errors incurred due to ignoring temporal sampling and show they are of similar magnitude as (but smaller than)...

    Sub-sea permafrost and hydrates in the East Siberian Arctic Ocean Continental Shelf (ESAS) constitute a substantial carbon pool, and a potentially large source of methane to the atmosphere. Previous studies based on interpolated oceanographic campaigns estimated atmospheric emissions from this...
