Introduction The Arctic is a remote region with generally very low concen- trations of aerosols. However, the concentration of especially accumulation mode aerosols and associated aerosol optical depth (AOD) annually peaks in the spring months March through April as a result of poleward aerosol transport. This increase in tropospheric aerosols is commonly referred to as Arctic haze (Shaw, 1995; Sirois and Barrie, 1999 and Quinn et al., 2007). It was first observed as * Corresponding author.

Aerosol mainly in the accumulation mode was found in the lower troposphere, however, enhanced backscattering was observed up to the tropopause altitude. A comparison of meteorological data available at different locations reveals a stable multi-layer-structure of the lower tropospher
