Principal Investigator:Hollett, Jeff Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will survey the Whale Cove area to determine the types of macroalgae (i.e., seaweed) present. Samples of the seaweed collected will be examined in consultation with Canadian Kelp Resources Ltd. for their economic potential as exotic types of tea. Species that show promise as ingredients in tea products will also be analyzed for the presence of contaminants....

The researcher and his team will survey streams for macroscopic algae, and relate their distribution to various physical and chemical characteristics, biomes and drainage basins. They will also set up a seasonal study of the physiological adaptations of macroalgae to the harsh conditions of tundra streams. As well, a widespread seaweed will be collected for comparison with other populations to d...

Some natural gases in air react with light and can cause ozone depletion near the earth's surface. Some of these gases are produced by marine plants or algae such as seaweeds and the small single-celled plants causing "brown ice". The researchers will find out what marine plants which contain and/or release these materials called "organohalogen gases". This study will help to determine how much ...
