Aerosol concentration and size distribution (>0.3 µm), Hornsund, spring 2021

Aerosol size distribution measurements at the Polish Polar Station Hornsund, during the 2021 spring fieldwork (25.04-15.05). Data obtained by PMS7003 particle concentration sensor. The device was installed in a fixed position on the roof of a specially prepared container (‘environmental house’) in the Fuglebekken catchment, located approximately in 500 m distance from the main base building.
