Development of an artificial "living" sediment to study the effects of metal contamination in Antarctic marine ecosystems.
Entry ID: ASAC_2946

Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2946.

Shallow nearshore marine habitats are rare in the Antarctic but human activities have led to their contamination. Preliminary studies suggest the characteristics of Antarctica nearshore sediments are different to elsewhere and that contaminant partitioning and absorption, and hence bioavailability, will also be very different. ...
