Abstract Brief overview of project aimed at characterizing means, variability and trends of climate-forcing properties of aerosols in polar regions, with particular reference to quantifying physical and radiative properties of aerosols at high latitudes. Project will include seasonal background concentrations inferred from aerosol optical depth (AOD) measurements, spectral characterizations, and patterns of natural and anthropogenic processes that influence radiative balance of surface and atmosphere.
