Sampling based chemical and biogeochemical stratification profiles of melt water ponds at Bratina Island, McMurdo Ice Shelf
Entry ID: K081_2005_2006_NZ_2

Abstract: A comprehensive suite of geochemical samples and measurements from a selection of meltwater ponds at Bratina Island was collected in the 2005/06 and 2006/07 seasons. The purpose was to help identify interactions between inorganic and organic carbon and the biogeochemical cycling of this element within meltwater ponds and to assess model predictions against observed winter freezing conditions in ...
