Abstract: During July 1994, sub-micron aerosol size distributions were measured at two sites on Tenerife, Canary Islands. One station was located in the free troposphere (FT), the other in the marine boundary layer (MBL). Transport towards these two sites was strongly decoupled: the FT was first affected by dust and sulfate laden air masses advecting form North Africa, and later by clean air masses originating over the N. Atlantic, whereas the MBL was always subject to the north-easterly trade wind circulation.
