Inactive
Global
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project will: 1) develop new methods for analyzing atmospheric gases in ice and the isotopic composition of water vapor, 2) develop a better understanding of the physics of snow-ice transition, 3) develop new views of climate, gases, dust, and aerosols using new analytical and modeling tools

OUTCOMES: Developed a new protocol to identify source dust from four isotope systems.
