Version of Record online: 6 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrd.50235

Key Points

  • Insoluble light absorbing particles are retained at the snow surface with melt.
  • Measurements indicate scavenging efficiencies with melt of 10-30%.
  • BC is not retained with higher efficiency than other light-absorbing particles.
