Biological, physical and chemical parameters in water and microbial mat samples from ponds in the Cape Hallett vicinity and cryoconite holes on the Tucker and Bornmann glaciers
Entry ID: K081_2005_2006_NZ_3

Abstract: A series of 10 ponds, located away from the main influences of the penguin colony at Cape Hallett, were investigated for variation in chemistry and microbial mat development. Cores of benthic microbial mats were collected from each pond for particulate nutrient and pigment analyses, biomass determination and species composition. Surface water samples were also collected from each pond to determine ... View entire text
