Ecological investigation of nitrogen sources and sinks in Lake Wilson and three catchment ponds in the Darwin Glacier region
Entry ID: K081_1992_1993_NZ_1

Abstract: Ecological investigations into the waters of the Darwin Glacier region (extreme southern end member to the Dry Valley system) were carried out to extend knowledge of microbial processes to high latitude and an area unique in water chemistry. The study focuses on nitrogen in the area as high nitrate values have been identified in the meltwater of the catchment of Lake Wilson at the lower end of the ... View entire text
