Sibylle Boxho from ULB Discusses Sampling Work for the PASPARTOUT Project

In January 2024, researcher Sibylle Boxho from the Unviersite Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) travelled to Antarctica for the PASPARTOUT project, which is seeking to understand the links between atmospheric circulation patterns, weather regimes, particles, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and moisture in Antarctica.

In this video Sibylle explains how she carefully takes samples of snow from a two-metre pit and what she and her colleagues will analyse once they samples arrive back in Belgium.

PASPARTOUT is coordinated by the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium with partners Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Prof. Nicole van Lipzig)), Ghent University (research group EnVOC, Prof. Walgraeve) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB, G-Time Laboratory, Prof. Nadine Mattielli). PASPARTOUT is financed by the Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO).
