Fluorescent sediment profile images (fSPI) for replicate macrofaunal communities from the Western Barents Sea for summer 2017 and 2018
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01368

Summary

Abstract:
Images of the macrofaunal mediated redistribution of optically distinct particulate tracers (luminophores) for intact communities from the western Barents Sea after 12 days incubation. Images of all four sides of each aquarium are taken using a digital SLR camera housed within a UV illuminated imaging box. Samples were collected on cruises JR16006 and JR17007.

Funding was provided by 'The Changing Arctic Ocean Seafloor (ChAOS) - how changing sea ice conditions impact biological communities, biogeochemical processes and ecosystems' project (NE/N015894/1 and NE/P006426/1, 2017-2021), part of the NERC funded Changing Arctic Ocean programme.
