Can We Model Snow Photochemistry? Problems with the Current Approaches

Florent Domine, Josué Bock, Didier Voisin, James Donaldson

Snow and the impurities contained therein form a complex multiphase photochemical reactor, releasing reactive molecules to the atmosphere and dramatically impacting the composition and reactivity of the lower polar troposphere. Challenges in our understanding and modeling abilities of this complex natural system are discussed.
