UW-video guided multibox corer sampling in- and outside iceberg scours provided quantitative macrozoobenthos samples for analyses of effects of grounding icebergs on infaunal benthic communities. These studies were performed on the southeastern Weddell Sea shelf off Kapp Norvegia and Austasen. Based on the UW-video sequences, stations were grouped a priori into two different "disturbance categories" and into undisturbed areas. Average biomass of major taxa in the cores of undisturbed areas was… CONTINUE READING
