Summary

Abstract:
Blue carbon data for assemblages living on soft substrata (20m South Cove and Hangar Cove) and Rocky substrata (Cheshire Island) around Rothera Point Antarctica (2013-2015) in both winter and summer. All fauna larger than 1mm (soft substrata) and 3mm (hard substrata) were collected by suction samplers. All fauna were identified and then carbon values calculated for each species from dry mass and ash free dry mass.
