X-ray computed microtomography of sea ice – comment on "A review of air–ice chemical and physical interactions (AICI): liquids, quasi-liquids, and solids in snow" by Bartels-Rausch et al. (2014)

Abstract. This comment addresses a statement made in "A review of air–ice chemical and physical interactions (AICI): liquids, quasi-liquids, and solids in snow" by Bartels-Rausch et al. (Atmos. Chem. Phys., 14, 1587–1633, doi:10.5194/acp-14-1587-2014, 2014). Here we rebut the assertion that X-ray computed microtomography of sea ice fails to reveal liquid brine inclusions by discussing the phases present at the analysis temperature.

Short summary
This paper, "X-ray computed microtomography of sea ice" is a comment on a recent paper, "A review of air–ice chemical and physical interactions (AICI): liquids, quasi-liquids, and solids in snow (Atmos. Chem. Phys., 14, 1587–1633, 2014)". Our paper corrects a part of the review paper, which was inaccurate regarding the capabilities of X-ray computed microtomography to reveal liquid brine inclusions in sea ice.
