Sediment surface images (SSI) for replicate macrofaunal communities from the Western Barents Sea for summer 2018
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01369

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 taken from above each aquarium using a digital SLR camera. Samples were collected on the cruise 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.
