Polar ice cores have supplied large advances in our wisdom of earlier weather swap. in addition they include an archive of geochemical information, that may definitely delineate a few of the forcing components that govern weather swap. in spite of the fact that, our skill to interpret those info is seriously curtailed by way of lack of know-how of the strategies governing the move of chemical species from the air to the snow. This booklet outlines the aptitude and difficulties of ice middle chemistry and discusses the procedures fascinated with air-snow move. It supplies the kingdom of present wisdom and an schedule for destiny research.

Chemical Pretreatment of Nuclear Waste for Disposal

Chemical pretreatment of nuclear wastes refers back to the series of separations strategies used to partition such wastes right into a small quantity of high-level waste for deep geologic disposal and a bigger quantity of low-level waste for disposal in a near-surface facility. Pretreatment of nuclear wastes now kept at numerous U.

From an analytical point of view CH4 and N20 behave as "friendly" gases. There are no potential precursors in the ice and their solubility in water is small, so that even liquid extraction systems do work. Next on the list of chemical trace gases to be measured are CO and H2. Because of their low concentrations, experimental difficulties in extracting the gas from the ice in sufficient amounts without affecting the concentration have thus to my knwledge prevented a successful measurements. Looking at our transfer function scheme in establishing the transfer function for stable gases, the major difficulties arises from the last step, transformation within the ice.

Minor changes of the concentration and isotopic composition are due to the effect of gravity and have been documented (Schwander, this issue). , 1995). There is not only a systematic shift in the level, but also elevated C02 concentrations in narrow layers. , 1991a). The discrepancies between the Antarctic and Greenland ice cores can be summarised as follows: a) C02 concentrations of Greenland deep cores in the so called Dansgaard-Oeschger events (the very rapid climatic fluctuations during the last glaciation) exactly parallels the 0 180 record as well as the Ca2+ record.

39 kinetics of condensation rather than by thermodynamics. No laboratory measurements of the diffusion and solubility of carboxylic acids in ice are available. It is then not possible to determine the relationship between the measured values and equilibrium. An intuitive approach does not seem reasonable, because diffusion mechanisms of acids in ice are poorly known. For example, one would expect RN0 3 to diffuse very slowly in ice because of its size, but its diffusion is much faster than that of RCI.
