The biomass, productivity and biodiversity of algae and bacteria in Granite Harbour and the physical parameters of their environment
Entry ID: K043_2008_2009_NZ_2

Abstract: The total biomass, productivity and biodiversity of algae and bacteria from the sea ice and the water column was investigated in Granite Harbour. Sampling sites in the Granite Harbour area were used to survey the sea ice for algae and bacteria by drilling cores and using bottom ice, brine and using the entire ice core to look at biomass in profile. Initial chlorophyll concentrations were ... View entire text
