Document Title: Close-up of frost flowers (DI01974)
Description: Close-up of frost flowers. Little known outside the world of polar research, frost flowers haven’t been studied much till recently. They’re highly salty, which makes them potentially important in the chemistry of depletion events. This image was taken during the OASIS (Ocean–Atmosphere–Sea Ice–Snowpack) field project. Part of International Polar Year, OASIS tackled a number of standing questions in polar chemistry, with the emphasis on the life cycle of pollutants that drift into the Arctic.
