Entry ID: LTER_PAL_PD9412

Abstract: Data was collected during the SantaClaus (Studies in Antarctica:
Coupled Linkages Among microorganisms) LTER time-series R/V Polar Duke

The cruise was a special-focus microbiology cruise focused on the
trophic coupling among various microbial assemblages including
heterotrophic bacteria, archaeobacteria, phytoplankton, protoans and
viruses. Sediment traps from PD94-01 deployment were retrieved and
re-deployed in Palmer Basin. Hugo Island Automatic Weather Station
(AWS) was installed and Racer Rock AWS serviced. Experiments included
ice algal work in Crystal Sound, coastal phytoplankton bloom work at
Paradise Harbor, and tethered spectral raidance buoy deployment.
