Sediment particle size analysis for stations from the Western Barents Sea for summer 2017 and 2018
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01373

Summary

Abstract:
Sediment particle size frequency distributions from the USNL (Unites States Naval Laboratory) box cores were determined optically using a Malvern Mastersizer 2000 He-Ne LASER diffraction sizer and were used to resolve mean particle size, sorting, skewness and kurtosis.

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.

Keywords:
