Long-term Aerosol and Trace Gas Measurements in Eastern Lapland, Finland: The Impact of Kola Air Pollution to New Particle Formation
2013 (English)In: NUCLEATION AND ATMOSPHERIC AEROSOLS, American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013, 409-412 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Sulfur emissions from the Kola Peninsula smelter industry have been decreasing over the past two decades. We investigated the effect of this to new particle formation at SMEAR I station in Eastern Lapland, Finland, using long-term measurements of trace gases and aerosol size distributions. We show that the number of events per year has decreased and can be linked with the decreasing sulfur emissions from Kola.
