This work describes physico–chemical and radiative measurements taken at the Mace Head Atmospheric Research Station during the period from 2000 to 2003. The measurements are indicative of the medium- to long-term measurement programme at the site. These include mass concentration (mass per unit volume) of total suspended particulate (TSP), aerosol inorganic chemical species, aerosol scattering coefficient; aerosol absorption coefficient and aerosol optical depth. The relatively continuous nature of the measurement programme permitted both monthly and seasonal characteristics of aerosol parameters to be established.
