Previous research has indicated that compounds containing bromine could play a role in the destruction of the ozone layer. This study is part of on-going research that is examining how important northern marine waters are as sources of bromine to the Arctic atmosphere. Seawater, snow and ice will be collected and assessed for bromine. In addition, measurements will be taken to determine if seaw...

"Brown ice" is caused by microscopic plants called ice algae. These plants comprise the base of the food chain, serving as food for small animals. Because of their dark colouration, ice algae absorb light and produce heat. We are studying what colours and how much light is absorbed by these plants. We are also measuring ozone concentrations over sea ice as well as the transfer of natural gases ...
