In situ measurements of photosynthesis in the benthic microbial mats at high depths under the perennial ice cover of Lake Hoare, Taylor Valley
Entry ID: K081_2004_2005_NZ_2

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: In situ measurements of photosynthesis in the benthic microbial mats, that grow under the perennial ice cover, of Lake Hoare were measured to determine if photosynthesis is positive at considerable depth (compared with rates measured under laboratory conditions) in the lake itself. In the first season of study, one dive site, at depths of 8 and 16m, was used to measure the fine scale distribution ... View entire text
