Trace Element Chemistry of Antarctic Saline Lakes and Fjords
Entry ID: ASAC_568

Abstract: From the referenced paper:

The frigid concentration or freezing of seawater is an important natural phenomenon in the polar regions and results in the precipitation of a different sequence of salts - and thus produces brines of different composition - to that formed during isothermal evaporation under temperate conditions (about 20-25 degrees C). Seawater freezing, however, has been studied less ... View entire text
