Investigating Source, Chemistry and Climate Changes using the Isotopic Composition of Nitrate in Antarctic Snow and Ice
Entry ID: USAP-1246223

Abstract: This award supports a project with the aim of distinguishing the sources of nitrate deposition to the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) using isotopic ratios snow in archive snow and ice samples. The isotopic composition of nitrate has been shown to contain information about the source of the nitrate (i.e. nitrogen oxides = NOx = NO+NO2) and the oxidation processes that convert NOx to nitrate in the ...
