Distribution and Viability of Zooplankton Eggs from Anoxic Sediments from the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica
Entry ID: ASAC_706

Abstract: Data set contains sediment cores from three saline lakes in the Vestfold Hills. The three lakes are Ace Lake, Lake Pendant and Lake Abraxas. Short cores from each lake are sectioned into 1 cm intervals. One 1.8 m core from Ace Lake is sectioned into 1 cm intervals. All sediments maintained at 4oC.

Detailed analyses of sections for remains of invertebrates - including tintinnids, forams, copepod ... View entire text
