Title

Atmospheric Aerosol Measurements in the North Atlantic Flight Corridor During Project POLINAT-2

Abstract

Project POLINAT-2 is a European Union sponsored program to investigate the contribution from air traffic exhaust emissions to the composition of the lower stratosphere and upper troposphere at altitudes between 9 and 13 km within the North Atlantic Flight Corridor (NAFC). This paper addresses two of the primary POLINAT-2 objectives: analysis of the extent and nature of particulate related corridor effects and airborne measurement accuracy through condensation nuclei concentration intercomparisons.
