Role of Antarctic marine protists in trophodynamics and global change and impact of UV-B on these organisms - Rotation 2 of the Astrolabe - 2002/2003 samplesEntry ID: ASAC_40_AS0304R2
Abstract: This dataset contains the locations of sampling sites for ASAC project 40 on rotation 2 of the French polar supply ship L'Astrolabe in the 2003/2004 season. Samples were collected between January and February of 2004. It also contains the final dataset which has information on chlorophyll, carotenoids, coccolithophorids and species indentification and counts.
Public Summary from the project:
... This program aims to determine the role of single celled plants, animals, bacteria and viruses in Antarctic waters. We quantify their vital role as food for other organisms, their potential influence in moderating global climate change through absorption of CO2 and production of DMS, and determine their response to effect of climate change.
