Mt. Erebus, the largest point source of NO2 in Antarctica

Abstract:

We report here the first observations of NO2 emission from Mt. Erebus, a volcano with an active lava lake located on Ross Island, Antarctica. Erebus generates a persistent plume, which is entrained at an altitude of about 4 km above sea level. Its NO2 flux, measured by scattered light ultraviolet spectroscopy in December 2003, was equivalent to ∼0.6 Gg (N) yr-1. The total reactive nitrogen supply may be significantly higher than this since other NOy species are likely to have been present in ...
