Entry ID: ASAC_2201_Casey_benthic_BBG

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A survey of macrobenthic assemblages in soft-sediments was done at Casey Station, East Antarctica. Samples were taken along four transects in Brown Bay, along a pollution gradient that has its source at an abandonded waste tip on the shore of Brown Bay. The transects were up to 300 M long and there were 9 sampling stations on each transect except for transect four which had only 4 sampling ... View entire text
