The phytoplankton and sea ice algal communities at the end of winter in McMurdo Sound were dominated by Fragilariopsis sublineata, with Thalassiosira antarctica, Melosira adele, Pinnularia quadreata, Entomoneis kjellmannii and heterotrophic dinoflagellates also present. Sea ice algal biomass at the end of winter was very low, only 0.050 ± 0.019 mg chla m−2 in 2007 and 0.234 ± 0.036 mg chla m−2 in 2008, but this increased to 0.377 ± 0.078 mg chla m−2 by early October in 2007 and to 1.07 ± 0.192… CONTINUE READING
