Synthetic chemicals in sea ice

25th March 2019

Jack Garnett and Max Thomas, both postdoctoral researchers in the EISPAC project, haveĀ  contributed an article to the March edition of “The Cryosphere and ATmospheric CHemistry” (CATCH).

The CATCH mission is to facilitate atmospheric chemistry research within the international community, with a focus on natural processes specific to cold regions of the Earth.

The article called “Synthetic chemicals in sea ice: a study using the Roland von Glasow air-sea-ice chamber” describes how the formation of sea ice concentrates synthetic chemicals from seawater, and the pathways by which these harmful chemicals enter the food chain.
