Short summary
Our manuscript represents the first field-based data set on the abundances of hydroxy fatty acids (FAs) in fresh snow and its filtering capacity to reduce hydroxy FA burden on the atmosphere. •Hydroxy fatty acids (FAs) in snow indicate a contribution from soil microbes and higher plants. •Air mass back trajectories reveal their transport from Russia, Siberia and China. We conducted the present study to better understand the impact of aeolian transport on bacteria & their filtering by snow.
