The aim of the project is to define Pb, Cd signals dominating in the Pan-Arctic. We will combine more conservative and newer non-traditional isotope systems (Pb, Sr, Nd and Cd) to distinguish between regional, crust derived, anthropogenic, local and distant sources of pollutants. We will sample 11 sites around the Arctic Circle where we will collect snow samples, soils, lichens and gasoline and diesel from local sources. The snow sampling campaign will be performed at all sites simultaneously.
