The effects of increased flow on the distribution of nutrient sources and sinks and the physical, chemical and biological components in the Onyx River ecosystem
Entry ID: K081_1993_1996_NZ_1

Abstract: The waters of Lake Vanda, Wright Valley have risen at a rate of 1m per year. The rise was largely attributed to increased flows in its only significant inflow, the Onyx River. The effects of this increase in flow on the physical, chemical and biological aspects of the river ecosystem were determined. River flows were monitored at the Lower Wright gauging station and a discharge record was ... View entire text
