Sea Ice Mass Balance in the Antarctic - Ice Biology

Summary
Abstract: The data set produced is composed of relationships between total integrated radiation doses to ice floes and metrics of sea ice biotic community succession. The late winter and early spring timing coupled with the seasonally strong meridional gradient in radiant energy provided a setting whereby these relationships could be better examined. Integrated radiation doses were estimated through the ... View entire text

Purpose: To assess sea ice microalgal biomass, community composition and pack ice biogeochemistry in context of the seasonal progression and succession of the sea ice cover. The autotrophic biomass in the various sea ice habitats spanned several orders of magnitude with chla ranging from 0.05 to ~60 ug chla l-1. The preliminary analysis of the biogeochemistry of the ice indicates these communities were ... View entire text
