Microbial communities in the water column and sea ice were studied during the EPOS-cruise on R/V Polarstern in the western Weddell Sea in late winter (October–November 1988). Samples were taken from four transects from heavy pack-ice to open water. The results indicated the important role of protozoans especially in the ice-edge area. Heterotrophic nanofiagellates, dinoflagellates, ciliates and sarcodines showed significant positive correlations with chlorophyll a. Autotrophic picoplankton and… Expand
