[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This training set is comprised of water chemistry and surface sediment diatom assemblages from 23 lakes on Svalbard (Jones & Birks in press). The top 0.5 cm of short sequences taken by gravity corer were analysed for diatoms, 500 diatoms per sample were counted for these surface sediment samples. Over 180 taxa were found but generally samples are taxon poor, with the majority of sites dominated by ... View entire text
