Since 1979 aerosol and CO(sub 2) measurements have been made in the Svalbard region. While exploring different sites for a permanent baseline station through CO(sub 2) sampling during limited periods of time intensive experiments were conducted to elucidate the physical and chemical characteristics of the Arctic haze phenomenon. This report summarizes all gas- and particle measurements taken until the end of 1990. Parameterizations for characteristics of the Arctic aerosols are given. Long term trends and seasonal variations of CO(sub 2) concentrations in the European Arctic are compared to results from other high latitude stations in the northern hemisphere. Several examples of continuous gas and particle measurements on Spitsbergen are discussed to demonstrate their value for the study of atmospheric and oceanic processes in the Svalbard region. 35 refs., 14 figs., 3 tabs.
