Relationships between sea salt and surface wind speed in the Svalbard region

1) Investigate relationships between aerosol properties and surface wind speed.

2) Investigate vertical distributions of sea-salt particles by comparing in-situ measurements at the Zeppelin station with satellite derived AOT and sea-salt AOT from GCM simulations.

Data: Na and Cl aerosols from EBAS, AOT from MERRA2 (Giovanni) sea-salt component of AOT from NorESM CAM6-Oslo
