Continuous 25-yr aerosol records at coastal Antarctica – I: inter-annual variability of ionic compounds and links to climate indices

Article English OPEN
Weller , R.; Wagenbach , D.; Legrand , M.; Elsasser , C.; Tian-Kunze , X.; König-Langlo , G.;

The aerosol climatology at the coastal Antarctic Neumayer Station (NM) was investigated based on continuous, 25-yr long observations of biogenic sulphur components (methanesulfonate and non–sea salt sulphate), sea salt and nitrate. Although significant long-term trends ... View more
