Physico-chemical properties of sea ice in relation to biological activity from ice cores taken along a transect in McMurdo Sound
Entry ID: K131_1999_2003_NZ_1

Abstract: The interactions between biological activity and physico-chemical characteristics of landfast first year sea ice were investigated in McMurdo Sound as a multiparametric analysis of the physico-chemical properties of the ice. The first phase occurred in early spring (when the photosynthetic activity restarts - October 1999), the second at the beginning of summer (November 2001) and the last phase ... View entire text
