Survey of soft sediment assemblages around Casey Station (grab samples), Feb - Mar, 1997
Entry ID: ASAC_2201_Casey_benthic_survey1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Marine soft-sediment assemblages were sampled from shallow (5 - 35m) nearshore regions around Casey Station, Windmill Islands, East Antarctica in late summer (Feb-March) 1997, using a van-Veen grab (surface area 20 x 25 cm). Samples were sieved through a 1 mm mesh and sorted to species where possible. A hierarchical, spatially nested sampling design was used with locations (km's apart), sites ... View entire text
