Sea ice bio-optics, organobromine fluxes and ozone depletion in the Arctic
Principal Investigator: Cota, Glen
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: "Brown ice" is caused by microscopic plants called ice algae. These plants comprise the base of the food chain, serving as food for small animals. Because of their dark colouration, ice algae absorb light and produce heat. We are studying what colours and how much light is absorbed by these plants. We are also measuring ozone concentrations over sea ice as well as the transfer of natural gases ...

The Role of Soil Algae in High Arctic Ecosystem Development

To Study Control of Metabolic Rates in Arctic Plants
Principal Investigator: Cummins, W. Raymond
Licensed Year(s): 1991 1990 1989
Summary: The Researcher and team will continue to collect information about repiration rates and growth rates in Arctic plants. They will confirm that Arctic plants have low rates of nitrate reductase activity and will determine if relationships exist between rates of respiration, photosynthesis and nitrogen reduction in these plants....
