Seasonal variations in nickel and vanadium in Mont Blanc snow and ice dated from the 1960s and 1990s.

Ni and V have been determined in snow and ice collected at a high altitude location (Col du Dôme) near the summit of Mont Blanc on the French-Italian border; dated from the 1960s and 1990s. Ni and V were simultaneously determined by inductively coupled plasma sector field mass spectrometry. Measured concentrations range from 6 to 700 pg g(-1) and 4 to 1,100… (More)
