Patterns of Chloride Deposition Next to a Road as Influenced by Salting Occasions and Winds
Bulk deposition was collected in a field adjacent to highway E4 in SE Sweden in order to describe the deposition pattern of deicing salt. The result was related to wind characteristics and deicing activities on the road. Chloride was shown to be transported several hundreds of meters away from the road. The amount of air-borne chloride deposited in the roadside environment was well correlated to the road-salting intensity.
