Diffusive Gradients in Thin Films (DGT) Methodology for Selective and Spatially Discriminating Binding of Metal Ions
Entry ID: ASAC_2665

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2665

See the link below for public details on this project.

The Antarctic environment with its harsh climatic conditions, minimal human activity and its unique ecosystems is unlike any of the World's other environments. As such, it is important that an understanding of the Antarctic environment is developed in order to gain a full appreciation of the ... View entire text
