Short summary
The influence of temperature and time for the melting snow samples on the measurement of mass concentration and its size distribution of black carbon (BC) in snow have not been understood enough. We evaluated the effect of the melting temperature and time with experiments. We also derived the best conditions of temperature and time for melting snow samples for the measurement of BC in snow by a single-particle soot photometer (SP2).
