Measurements of tropospheric aerosols and meteorological data in remote marine region in Antarctica to compare with New Zealand measurements to help understand the sulphur cycles influence on global climate
Entry ID: K176_1991_1992_NZ_1

Abstract: Dimethylsulphide (DMS) and sub-micron atmospheric particles are key components in the atmospheric sulphur cycle. DMS produced by biota in the oceans is thought to be the main source of atmospheric sulphur in the atmosphere over the southwest Pacific. Once in the atmosphere, DMS is oxidised, resulting in the formation of aerosol containing non-sea-salt sulphate and methanesulphonic acid. An ... View entire text
