Inorganic carbon removal and isotopic enrichment in Antarctic sea ice gap layers during early austral summer

  title={Inorganic carbon removal and isotopic enrichment in Antarctic sea ice gap layers during early austral summer},
  author={Stathys Papadimitriou and David Nicholson Thomas and Hilary Kennedy and Harri Kuosa and Gerhard S. Dieckmann},
The biogeochemical composition of 2 spatially separate surface gap layers on a single Antarctic sea ice floe during early austral summer was predominantly controlled by the growth of diatoms and, especially, Phaeocystis. These algal communities in and near the gap layers imposed large geochemical changes in the chemical and isotopic composition of the gap waters, typical of intense autotrophic activity. These included a large deficit in all major dissolved inorganic nutrients (dissolved… CONTINUE READING
