[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Tweleve ponds on the McMurdo Ice Shelf were sampled to create and annual data set of water nutrient chemistry (DRP, NH4-N, NO3-N, TDN, TDP), pH, conductivity, temperature, phytoplankton chlorophyll a, and particulate N: P. Biological parameters collected include benthic algal chlorophyll a and ash-free dry weight, benthic microbial biomass, pigment and species composition. Species composition and ... View entire text
