CACHE-CEFAC: Chemical Exchange and Feedbacks between the Atmosphere and Cryosphere
Entry ID: GB-NERC-BAS-PDC-00508

Abstract: We will conduct year-round atmospheric chemistry measurements at Halley of key oxidants (OH, HO2, NO, O3, CO, Js), to study the role of the snowpack in determining the oxidant system. This will be in collaboration with Dr Greg Huey ( from Georgia Institute of Technology. The Antarctic work will be carried out in the Clean Air sector Laboratory ... View entire text

Purpose: To determine the chemical exchanges that take place between ice and the atmosphere, and to estimate how the size of the cryosphere would affect atmospheric chemistry in the present day, under past glacial conditions, and in a future warmer world with reduced snow cover.

Objectives include:
* To determine the year-round oxidative capacity at Halley for the present day;
* To quantify variables ... View entire text
