Predicting contaminant impacts at Lake Vanda, Antarctica
Entry ID: K094_1995_1997_NZ_1

Abstract: Samples of water, phytoplankton, sediment, soil and bacterial mat were sampled from Lake Vanda and the old Vanda station site, in order to determine the fate of trace metal contaminants and their possible interaction with microbial organisms. The study was carried out over two seasons; summer 1995/96 and 1996/97. Water samples had the pH, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and H2S ... View entire text
