Suggestions for Future Work

The primary objectives of this paper are to provide an updated summary of available chemistry data from Antarctica and make recommendations for future efforts. The observed variability across Antarctica clearly shows the need for an improved understanding of the mechanisms that ultimately control the chemistry of a snow or ice sample. By making this data set available, we invite and encourage the wider science community to participate in this continent-wide effort

Based on our findings and on previous papers, we aim for the following research outputs as the next step for the ITASE Chemistry Synthesis Group:


We would like to thank SCAR, the national Antarctic programmes, and the national funding sources for their support. Two anonymous reviewers made helpful comments that improved this manuscript.
