Water chemistry and biology of the Canada Glacier glacial meltwater stream
Entry ID: K009_1981_1982_NZ_1

Abstract: Lake water chemistry is relatively well understood, whereas in comparison stream waters have been little studied. The chemistry of glacial meltwater from the Canada Glacier was characterised and the analysis was compared against another selected meltwater stream at Cape Bird, one from the Miers Valley and the Onyx River. The aim was to identify and explain dry diurnal and seasonal variation in ... View entire text
