Soil Moisture 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 moisture content of soil samples collected for organism extraction and identification was determined. Samples were taken on November 13, 1995, November 17, 1995, November 24, 1995 and December 11, 1995.

Date Range:
