  title={Photoadaptation of high Arctic ice algae},
  author={Glenn F. Cota},
In aquatic systems, the layer that is suitable for positive net photosynthesis (the euphotic zone) is usually considered to extend from the surface down to the depth of penetration of 1% of the surface irradiance, which corresponds to ∼15 µE m−2s−1 at solar noon during late summer in open waters in the high Arctic1. In polar regions, vernal blooms of epontic algae (unicellular algae associated with the lower interface of sea ice whose photosynthetic characteristics are not well known2–4… CONTINUE READING
