Pollen Analysis of Snow Samples from the North Pole Region
Abstract:This note presents results of a pollen analysis of sea-ice snow samples collected in April–May 2002 by members of the Russian Northern Polar Station–2001. Pollen and spores are deposited with snow falling on Arctic sea ice, and by determining the plant species represented by these pollen and spores, information about atmospheric circulation patterns can be obtained.
