Biogenic gas emissions from glacial melt water ponds on the McMurdo Ice Shelf : A collaboration with the RISE (Ross Ice Shelf Ecosystem) programme
Entry ID: K013_1993_1994_NZ_1

Abstract: Aspects of the biogeochemical cycling of sulphur and iodine was examined on the McMurdo Ice Shelf at Bratina Island to investigate the role of glacial melt water ponds as a biogenic source of sulphur or iodine containing gases. Several ponds with different characteristics were investigated with 130 samples of water and benthic mat from 30 different systems collected and analysed for temperature, ... View entire text
