Keywords:aerosol, aircraft measurement, black carbon, iron oxide, atmospheric chemical composition

In this presentation, we will talk about the basic behaviors, microphysical and associated optical properties, and transport-and-removal processes of the tropospheric black carbon and iron oxide aerosol which have been elucidated mostly from aircraft measurements. We will clarify the scientific significance and contribution of these findings in the context of the related international research activities on atmospheric aerosols and climate change. In addition, we will suggest some related open problems which need to be investigated through in-situ aircraft measurements in future research.
