Is snow made only of water? In the Arctic (北极地区), there is plastic (塑料) snow.
German scientists have recently found microplastics (微塑料) in Arctic snow, Associated Press reported. 1 Microplastics are pieces of plastic that are smaller than 5 millimeters (毫米) in length. The scientists found 1,800 pieces of microplastic per liter (升) of Arctic snow.
