Measurements of the amount of UV and visible radiation falling onto sea ice and the effects of enhanced UV radiation levels on sea ice algae
Entry ID: K136_1991_1992_NZ_1

Abstract: Sea ice algae are speculated to be considerably vulnerable to the effects of enhanced UV from the ozone hole during the Antarctic spring. The amount of UV and visible radiation falling onto the sea ice (the spectrum, intensity and where it comes from in the sky and the polariation of the radiation) was characterised using two instruments at Tent Island and near Scott Base. Measurements include ... View entire text
