Abstract: Metadata record for data expected from ASAC Project 919.
See the link below for public details on this project.

The plankton dynamics of Ace Lake, a sline, meromictic basin in the Vestfold Hills, eastern Antarctica was studied between December 1995 and February 1997. The lake supported two distinct plankton communities; an aerobic microbial community in the upper oxygenated mixolimnion and an ... View entire text
