Short summary
First measurements at the Atmospheric Station Křešín u Pacova revealed a seasonal variability of elemental and organic carbon with slightly higher autumn and winter concentrations. A suitable statistical method for the replacement of very low elemental carbon concentrations (i.e. under the instrument quantification limit) was found. In summer, the top of the 250 m tall station tower is frequently above the nocturnal surface inversions, thus being decoupled from local influences.
