ASPeCt-Bio: Chlorophyll a in Antarctic sea ice from historical ice core dataset
Entry ID: ASPeCt-Bio

Abstract: The ASPeCt - Bio dataset is a compilation of currently available sea ice chlorophyll a (chl-a) data from pack ice (i.e., excluding fast ice) cores collected during 32 cruises to the Southern Ocean sea ice zone from 1983 to 2008 (Table S1). Data come from peer-reviewed publications, cruise reports, data repositories and direct contributions by field-research teams. During all cruises the chl-a ... View entire text
