Photosynthetic rates of Antarctic sea-ice algae
Entry ID: ASAC_854

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: From the abstract of one of the papers:

Oxygen microelectrodes were used to measure the photosynthetic rates of Antarctic fast ice algal mats. Using the oxygen flux across the diffusive boundary layer below the fast ice at Davis, a productivity range of 0-1.78mg C per square metre per hour was measured. This is at the lower end of fast ice productivity estimates and suggests that conventional ... View entire text
