The role of Antarctic marine protists in trophodynamics and global change and the impact of UV-B on these organisms - Voyage 1 2002/2003 samplesEntry ID: ASAC_40_AA0203V1
Abstract: Locations of sampling sites for ASAC project 40 on voyage 1 of the Aurora Australis in the 2002/2003 season. Samples were collected between October and November of 2002.
The final dataset will contain information on chlorophyll, carotenoids, coccolithophorids and species indentification and counts.
Public Summary from the project:
This program aims to determine the role of single celled ... plants, animals, bacteria and viruses in Antarctic waters. We quantify their vital role as food for other organisms, their potential influence in moderating global climate change through absorption of CO2 and production of DMS, and determine their response to effect of climate change.
For more information, see the other metadata records related to ASAC project 40 (ASAC_40).
