Summary
Abstract: To date there is a lack of knowledge of the composition of the past African atmosphere, especially at high elevations. As aerosols play an important role in the climate system, the assessment of their chemical and physical characteristics is critical to better understand the past climate dynamics of this continent. The Kilimanjaro ice fields (3º04.6’S; 37º21.2’E; 5893 m a.s.l.) have entrapped ... View entire text
