Spatial Distribution of Nanoparticles in the Free Troposphere over Siberia
Two first airborne campaigns of the “YAK-AEROSIB” Russian-French Project were conducted in April and September, 2006, over a vast territory of West and East Siberia. The main goal of the Project is to study spatial distribution of trace impurities, which are responsible for the global worming effect. In the framework of this project French partners provided continuous measurements of CO, CO2, and O3 while Russian scientific group measured number concentration of ultrafine and fine aerosols as well as performed aerosol sampling for the chemical analysis. Spatial distribution of aerosol number concentration observed during two different seasons is presented.
