Coccolithophore species fluxes in the Australian sector of the southern Antarctic Zone
Entry ID: Coccolithophore_Fluxes_SAZ

Abstract: Coccolithophore fluxes were investigated over a one-year period (2001-02) at the southern Antarctic Zone in the Australian Sector of the Southern Ocean at the site of the Southern
Ocean Iron Release Experiment (SOIREE) near 61°S, 140°E. Two vertically moored sediment traps were deployed at 2000 and 3700 m below sea-level during a period of 10 months. In these data sets we present the results on ... View entire text
