The effect of temperature and sulphate availability on the terminal electron flow (to sulphide or methane) in anaerobic Antarctic sediments
Entry ID: K081_2001_2002_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Sediment was collected from a range of ponds from the McMurdo Ice Shelf and returned to New Zealand for laboratory studies. Samples were incubated in long term incubators to determine the relative importance of sulphate and carbon dioxide as terminal electron acceptors in degradation of organic material.
