The role of iron as a micro-nutrient to the Antarctic sea-ice zone algal community - Casey Data
Entry ID: ASAC_3026_Casey

Abstract: Public Description of the Project
This project will assess the importance of the trace micro-nutrient element iron to Antarctic sea-ice algal communities during the International Polar Year (2007-2009). We will investigate the biogeochemistry of iron, including a comprehensive examination of its distribution, speciation, cycling and role in fuelling ice-edge phytoplankton blooms. A significant ...
