Role of micronutrients in the sea ice microbial ecosystem
Entry ID: ASAC_2299

Abstract: The productivity of Antarctic waters may be controlled by the amount of iron. Experiments have shown that this is probably the case for phytoplankton but as yet we do not know if iron limits the growth of sea ice algae. This study will assess whether iron limits sea ice algae production and will conduct experiments to work out how these algae use iron.
