Contents Notes
Describes behavior of metals in snowmelt. Analyzes partitioning between dissolved and particulate fractions. Includes discussion of particle sizes in runoff, specific surface area, and partitioning of metals based on particle sizes under snowmelt conditions. Finds that copper levels in snowmelt can be relatively high as compared to concentrations in runoff and snowmelt copper concentrations often exceed water quality standards. The relatively high copper concentrations are attributed to the accumulation of copper deposited from vehicles.
