Soft sediment assemblages at Casey Station: Spatial variation and human impacts. (core samples: Oct-Dec 1997)
Entry ID: ASAC_2201_Casey_benthic_survey2

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A survey of macrobenthic assemblages in soft-sediments was done at Casey Station, East Antarctica. Samples were taken by divers using hand-held corers (core size - 10 cm diameter by 10 cm deep). The aims were: 1) To examine spatial variation at several scales in these assemblages; 2) To determine if there were differences between potentially impacted areas and control areas; 3) To determine the ...
