Chlorophyll-a Concentrations for Soil Biota Distribution Experiment

Summary

Abstract: 

 Investigation of the variation in soil biota and soil properties across the McMurdo Dry Valleys was part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project. Chlorophyll-a concentrations from soil samples collected for organism extraction and identification  was determined. Chlorophyll-a samples were gathered on the following dates:
 
 * December 12 and 22, 1994,
 * January 9, 1995,
 * November 8, 1995,
 * December 7, 1995, and
 * January 12, 1998. 
 

Date Range: 

Monday, December 12, 1994 to Monday, January 12, 1998
