Anthropogenic derived pollution episodes at Barrow, Alaska occur when air masses under anticyclonic influence emanate from the Arctic Basin. The high frequency of above-normal wind speeds and the only slightly above-normal pressures characteristic of these Arctic air masses suggest that pollutants are transported to Barrow along the periphery of the Arctic anticyclone within a zone of rapid transport.
