Science / project plan

Coincident measurements of bottom-ice algal and bacteria production will be made using traditional and oxygen based incubations. Changes in community productivity over the spring bloom and between different snow covers will be assessed this coming spring in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, while environmental factors potentially driving variability are documented. Collaborations will also be made with Dr. Brent Else and his eddy covariance system to assess potential nutrient limitation in the bottom ice.

Fieldwork site: Field camp, Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, Canada

Project lead: K. Campbell

PI: S. Rysgaard/CJ Mundy

Project Participants: Karley Campbell (CEOS); Dr. Søren Rysgaard (CEOS); Dr. C.J. Mundy (CEOS)
