Measurements of atmospheric aerosols from air and snow samples and meteorological measurements taken from a remote site on the Ross Ice Shelf
Entry ID: K093_1989_1990_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The chemistry of air and snow at a remote site on the Ross Ice Shelf was conducted to study atmospheric aerosol particulates which are of interest as they may be important regulators of climate and can indicate the relative strengths of natural and man-made sources of aerosol on a global scale. A range of air and snow samples were collected throughout the study period. Aerosol particulates were ... View entire text
