The biomass, productivity and biodiversity of algae and bacteria in Terra Nova Bay and the physical parameters of their environment
Entry ID: K043_2006_2008_NZ_1

Abstract: The total biomass, productivity and biodiversity of algae and bacteria from the sea ice and the water column was investigated in Terra Nova Bay. Sampling sites in the Terra Nova Bay area were used to survey the sea ice for algae and bacteria by drilling cores and using bottom ice, brine and using the entire ice core to look at biomass in profile. Initial chlorophyll concentrations were determined ... View entire text
