Atmospheric Sb in the Arctic during the past 16,000 years: Responses to Climate change and human impactsDownload
Abstract: Applying strict clean room procedures and sector field inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) methods, concentrations of Sb and Sc were determined in 57 sections of a 170.6-m-long ice core drilled on Devon Island, Arctic Canada, in 1999, providing a record of atmospheric...
Abstract: Despite its growing environmental significance, there are no detailed historical records of atmospheric As deposition for the Northern Hemisphere. Having overcome the severe analytical challenges in measuring As in polar ice, and using an Arctic ice core representing similar to 16 ka of...
Predominance of industrial Pb in recent snow (1994-2004) and ice (1842-1996) from Devon Island, Arctic CanadaDownload
Abstract: Atmospheric Pb contamination was studied using snow and ice from the Canadian arctic. Forty-five samples representing the past ten years of snow accumulation on Devon Island contain an average of 45.2 pg/g of Pb but only 0.43 pg/g of Sc. The average ratio of Pb to Sc (105) is far...
