Effects of Enhanced UV-B on Sea Ice Algae
Entry ID: ASAC_765

Abstract: From the abstract of some of the papers:

It has been suggested that increased springtime UVB radiation caused by stratospheric ozone depletion is likely to reduce primary production and induce changes in the species composition of Antarctic marine phytoplankton. Experiments conducted at Arthur Harbour in the Antarctic Peninsula revealed a reduction in primary productivity at both ambient and ... View entire text
