Role of Antarctic marine protists in trophodynamics and global change and impact of UV-B on these organisms - Rotation 4 of the Astrolabe - 2007/2008 samplesEntry ID: ASAC_40_AS0708R4
Abstract: Locations of sampling sites for ASAC project 40 on rotation 4 of the French polar supply ship L'Astrolabe in the 2007/2008 season. Samples were collected between February and March of 2008.
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).
