Aerosol characterization and snow chemistry at Terra Nova Bay
Entry ID: Aerosol_char_and_snow_chem_TNB

Abstract: Antarctic aerosol was sampled at Terra Nova Bay using an inertial spectrometer at high flow rate. This instrument can sample aerosol and deposit particles on a membrane filter with size separation. The density of single particles and average density vs. aerodynamic diameter has been evaluated. Chemical composition of aerosol particles was determined by analyzing samples taken on millipore filters ... View entire text
