Investigations into the Deep Chlorophyll Maximum Layer of Lake Vanda, Wright Valley: How is the DCM established and maintained?
Entry ID: K081_1994_1996_NZ_2

Abstract: The waters of Lake Vanda, Wright Valley, have risen at a rate of 1m per year. Within the lake there is a biologically important layer, the deep chlorophyll maximum (DCM), where high algal production occurs at 63m depth. The study aimed to understand how this layer has been maintained at this depth in spite of the rise in lake level. Mathematical modelling of the processes which maintain the DCM ... View entire text
