Concentration of aerosols, gaseous sulfur compounds and oxidants in the southern atmosphere (Central Antarctica, Concordia Station)
Entry ID: 903_0_IPEV_FR

Abstract: This program is dedicated to the study of key atmospheric species present in the lower troposphere at mid and high southern latitudes, these regions being still undisturbed by human activities. The present lack of atmospheric data in these regions, where it is still possible to examine the natural variability of the chemical composition of the atmosphere and its complexity, motivates this study. ...
