Effect of acidification on an Arctic phytoplankton community from Disko Bay , West Greenland

  author={Christina Thoisen and Karen Riisgaard and Nina Lundholm and Torkel Gissel Nielsen and Per Juel Hansen},
Long-term measurements (i.e. months) of in situ pH have not previously been reported from the Arctic; this study shows fluctuations between pH 7.5 and 8.3 during the spring bloom 2012 in a coastal area of Disko Bay, West Greenland. The effect of acidification on phytoplankton from this area was studied at both the community and species level in experimental pH treatments within (pH 8.0, 7.7 and 7.4) and outside (pH 7.1) in situ pH. The growth rate of the phytoplankton community decreased during… CONTINUE READING
