Collaborative Research: Biogeochemistry of Dissolved Organic Matter in Pony Lake, Ross Island
Entry ID: NSF-ANT03-38260

Abstract: Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is a significant chemical component in aquatic systems because it acts as an important carbon source for microorganisms, absorbs harmful radiation in sunlight, is able to complex metals, and can participate in important biogeochemical reactions. This study will investigate the biogeochemical cycling of DOM in a small coastal Antarctic pond, Pony Lake, located on Cape ... View entire text
