Chlorophyll-A Responses to Short-Term Soil Manipulation Experiment

Summary

Abstract: 

A short-term soil manipulation experiment has been conducted as part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project. The chlorophyll-a concentration of soil samples was determined. Samples were taken on November 13, 1995, November 17, 1995, November 24, 1995 and December 11, 1995.

Date Range: 

Monday, November 13, 1995 to Monday, December 11, 1995
