The carbon cycle within oceans is determined mainly by the combined activities
of bacteria and phytoplanktonic organisms, and its efficiency depends on the
interaction between the different ...
Data on bacterial biomass, bacterial processes and adaptation to in situ
conditions of ocean; data on quantity and quality of organic matter.
Water samples were collected from Niskin bottles. ...
Characterization of bio-optical properties, the levels of primary
and new production, and other carbon fluxes in selected areas of the
Humboldt Current System in relation to oceanographic conditions. ...
Determination of the structure and functioning of the benthic
community, and pools and fluxes of N-compounds (ammonia, nitrate,
nitrite) across the sediment-water interface in relation to local
Estimate of the plentifulness of the different benthic species, by
means of samples collected in radial areas with drag box-corer,
Agassiz drag and suprabenthic grip slipper, on the southern ...
-The studied zone presented areas with high phytoplankton productivity.
During the first part of the cruise, one of these areas was associated
tothe frontal zone of the Southern Boundary ...
Antarctic coastal ecosystems are characterised by a substantial planktonic
productivity which have an important contribution to the carbon flow in the
Southern Ocean and, therefore, its ...
This data type contains data from analyses of seabed oxygen consumption
determined from measurements over a specified time interval of initial
and final dissolved oxygen concentration. Cruise information, ...
Annual sampling for the seventh Palmer Long-Term Ecological Research
(LTER) January cruise was completed. The LTER stations were held on
the Western Antarctic Peninsula LTER meoscale grid. Sampling ...
Data was collected during the Austral spring LTER time-series R/V
Polar Duke cruise.
Objectives included the following considerations: 1) ice processes -
effect of ice on the ecosystem; 2) temporal ...
In the present project the dynamics of particulate matter at the
water-bottom interface will be studied, identifying the role of the
main physical forcing factors controlling such dynamics. The relative ...
The study of the effects of UV-B radiation on key organisms of the
marine ecosystem (phytoplankton and bacteria) is studied. Some
parameters measured are primary production, growth, survival,
This data set is an IBM compatible PC-based Marine Atlas covering the Northeast
Atlantic and mainly centered on the British Isles. It comes on 5 1.4mb floppy
diskettes and runs under DOS Version 3.0 ...
