A large-scale comprehensive study of the composition of the troposphere of the Russian Arctic was carried out in September 2020 onboard the TU 134 “Optic” aircraft laboratory. The results of the study of the spatiotemporal variability of aerosol and black carbon (BC) concentrations are considered. The airborne sensing data were used for the analysis of general and particular features of the spatial variability of vertical profiles of aerosol and BC concentrations. The columnar BC concentrations in the arctic and subarctic latitudes were obtained.
