Uncertainty surrounds estimates of microbial cell and organic detritus fluxes from glacier surfaces. Here, we present the first enumeration of biological particles draining from a supraglacial catchment, on Midtre Lovénbreen (Svalbard) over 36 days. A stream cell flux of 1.08 × 10(7)  cells m(-2)  h(-1) was found, with strong inverse, non-linear associations between water discharge and biological particle concentrations. Over the study period, a significant decrease in cell-like particles… CONTINUE READING
