The OP's links provide 2 examples of discolored snow in Russia - the pink and a prior episode of yellow, oily, odoriferous snow. That second example
might compare to the Korean yellow snow. Also, I am not certain, but the Maritime Provinces of Russia (pink snow) can be the eastern seaboard,
but then the article uses Far East to describe Sakhalin Island (yellow snow).
Addressing yellow snow in Korea and Sakhalin Island: Does anyone think this may have something to do with the chemical spills in China between
Nov2005 and Jan2006 (see link below)? The benzene spill flowed downriver to Khaborovosk - very close to Korea and Sakhalin Island.
Although benzene is colorless, some of its related chemicals are white, yellow, gray, gray-reddish.
I do not know that much about weather systems except that typhoons that originate in the western Pacific tend to slam up Taiwan, mainland China,
Japan, Korea, Sakhalin. China is so wet with rivers, do the prevailing winds carry from China northeast to Korea and Russia, dumping "heavy"
(chemical laden) snow?
