We discuss the results of measurements in the region of Cape Baranov (the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago) of the set of physical-chemical characteristics of atmospheric aerosol: aerosol optical depth, aerosol and black carbon concentrations, elemental and ion composition of aerosol, organic and elemental carbon contents in aerosol, and isotopic composition of carbon in the aerosol and snow samples. It is shown that the average values of the most aerosol characteristics, measured in April-June 2018, are much lower than in the Arctic settlement Barentsburg (Spitsbergen archipelago) and several-fold smaller than in the south of Western Siberia in the same period of time.
