Group: Summary

   This data set contains light absorption coefficients for soluble chromophores 
   (light-absorbing chemicals) and concentrations of hydrogen peroxide (HOOH) and 
   nitrate (NO3-) in ten snow samples that were collected in 2003 at Dome C, 
   Antarctica.

   Data are available via FTP.
