  • Particulate organic matter, including microorganisms, small water-insoluble particles and microaggregates, can form a substantial part of the summer aerosol over the open leads of the central Arctic Ocean. The increased presence of leads during the summer melt increases the biological activity of the region possibly resulting in accumulation of organic material, especially in the surface microlayer. Preferential microlayer enrichment of particulate and dissolved organic matter and gases might… CONTINUE READING
