Sediment resuspension is a common phenomenon whose importance may be magnified in nearshore environments surrounding Antarctica, especially during the austral winter. Analyses suggest that sediments in the vicinity of McMurdo Station contain viable algal material throughout this period of darkness. The resuspension of these sediments, shown by sediment trap… CONTINUE READING
