Entry ID: ArcOD_2008I4

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This dataset describes ice algae (10 species; 38 rows) of the Barents Sea studied from 1986 to 1988. With a few exceptions, the ice algal assemblages were dominated by pennate diatoms. From March to early June there was a transition from a mixed population of both centric and pennate diatoms at the start into a well developed Nitzschia frigida assemblage. Nutrients in ice-covered regions were high ... View entire text

Purpose: These data are from a survey of the conditions and compositions of sub-ice algae in the Barents Sea.
