Pre and Post Deposition Processes of Black Carbon in Snow

The aim of this proposal is to better understand pre and post depositional processes of black carbon (BC) in snow. So far, little research has been conducted to understand the transfer function of BC aerosols in the atmosphere to BC aerosols deposited on snow/ice surfaces. Additionally, little i...

Identifying the permafrost isotopic signal and assessing permafrost freezing age by radionuclides

We use Radium isotopes to assess the freezing age of the pore-ice water. Because of the effort required to extract sufficient amounts of pore-ice water, and due to the expected low activity (concentration), we use ratios of different Radium isotopes. These ratios can serve as a unique signal of t...
