Snow samples for chemistry purposes were collected every 10-km. Samples are for major ion analysis, stable isotope analysis and trace metal elements. Sampling was done from top 10-20 cm of the snow. Sampling was done along a route connecting “Syowa – Mizuho – Dome Fuji – JASE Meeting Point (75°53’S; 25°50’E; 3661 m a.s.l.) – Dome Fuji – Mizuho – Syowa”. Major ions and stable isotope will be analysed in National Institute of Polar Research, Japan. Snow sampling for the trace metal elements were requested from Dr. Hong in South Korea.
