Interseasonal variability of benthic diatoms communities within the Windmill Islands, Antarctica
Entry ID: Diatoms_seasonal_var


Summary
Abstract: Sediment samples were collected with an Eckamn grab from four locations within the Windmill Islands (Herring Island, O'Connor Island, Shannon Bay and Brown Bay). A weekly sampling program was performed over a 10 week period, however not all locations could be accessed each time due to sea-ice conditions. All samples were collected at an 8 m water depth. Preliminary analysis of fortnightly ... View entire text
