- ... Molecular distributions of terrestrial biomarkers were investigated in fresh snow samples from Sapporo, northern Japan, to better understand the long-range atmospheric transport of terrestrial organic matter by the Asian winter monsoon. Stable carbon (δ¹³C) and hydrogen (δD) isotope ratios of C₂₂–C₂₈n-alkanoic acids were also measured to decipher their source regions. The snow samples are found to ...
