Measurements of the effects of UV-B on sea ice algal growth and productivity
Entry ID: K131_1994_1998_NZ_4

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The effects of UV-B on the growth and productivity of sea ice algae was investigated with two experiments. The growth of sea ice algae was investigated in situ under four different light treatments including a) control; under normal snow cover (10cm) with UV-B and PAR radiation, b) normal snow cover, natural PAR but no UV-B radiation, c) no snow, natural UV-B and PAR radiation and d) no snow, ...
