Research/Observation Title

GREENEDGE Ice camp 2016

Science Summary (common)

The ArCS Theme 6 has conducted an international collaboration with the GREENEDGE project. One scientist from Hokkaido University joined the ice camp. During the ice camp, we collected zooplankton (mainly copepods) samples by net towings under a first year ice. Those samples were used to measure grazing and fecal pellet production rates under a first year ice.
