[ACG24-14] Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) analysis of Black Carbon in Arctic snow
Keywords:Black Carbon, SEM, Arctic Snow
Microscopic observation revealed that snow samples from Alaska, Greenland and Sapporo contained black carbon particles with chain-like structures and compact aggregate structures as shown in Scarnato et al. (2013). However, the proportion of these black carbon structures were different among the samples. For example, snow from Greenland contained higher abundance of chain particles, while that from Alaska contained higher compact particles coated by membrane like material.
