Ice nucleating particles (INP) influence the microphysical and radiative properties of clouds. Therefore, INP may play a role in Arctic amplification as increasing temperature most likely will also lead to an increase in INP number concentration. However, little quantitative knowledge exists concerning the abundance, properties and sources of Arctic INP, and their effects on cloud phase and properties. Therefore, within the project (AC)³ B04 we have been undertaking significant efforts to increase our respective knowledge. The most important results of these efforts will be presented in this lecture.
