attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String Small holes were drilled through the McMurdo Sound fast ice. A Niskin Bottle
was deployed below the fast ice and water was collected just below the ice-
water interface and at a pre-determined depth (Chlorophyll maximum) as
determined by a fluorescence sensor on a CTD. Water samples from the Niskin
bottles were collected in 4 L amber Nalgene bottles and then immediately
stored in a dark cooler. Gloves were worn for sample collection and bottles
and caps were rinsed three times before sample collection. The sample bottles
were immediately processed as soon as they returned from the field. The
collection bottle was gently swirled and 50 to 2000 mL were filtered under low
vacuum onto a 25 mm GF/F filter. Filters were immediately placed in 13 mm
borosilicate test tubes containing 7 mL 90% v/v HPLC grade acetone and
extracted in the dark for 24 h at -20 degrees C. After extraction,
fluorescence was measured with a Turner Designs 10 AU fluorometer before and
after acidification. The fluorometer was calibrated at McMurdo Station at the
beginning of the field season using Chlorophyll a standards from Sigma-Aldrich
and rechecked using a solid standard from Turner Designs several times during
the field season. Chlorophyll a was determined using the methods of Parsons et
al. (1984).

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_0_description String A Niskin bottle (a next generation water sampler based on the Nansen bottle) is a cylindrical, non-metallic water collection device with stoppers at both ends. The bottles can be attached individually on a hydrowire or deployed in 12, 24 or 36 bottle Rosette systems mounted on a frame and combined with a CTD. Niskin bottles are used to collect discrete water samples for a range of measurements including pigments, nutrients, plankton, etc.

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_1_description String The Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO) series of single channel fluorometers delivers both high resolution and wide ranges across the entire line of parameters using 14 bit digital processing. The ECO series excels in biological monitoring and dye trace studies. The potted optics block results in long term stability of the instrument and the optional anti-biofouling technology delivers truly long term field measurements.

attribute NC_GLOBAL project String Food web dynamics in an intact ecosystem: the role of top predators in McMurdo Sound
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_acronym String McMurdo Predator Prey
attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String Extracted from the NSF award abstract:
The research project investigates the importance of top down forcing on pelagic food webs. The relatively pristine Ross Sea includes large populations of upper-level predators such as minke and killer whales, Ad�lie and Emperor penguins, and Antarctic toothfish. This project focuses on food web interactions of Ad�lie penguins, minke whales, and the fish-eating Ross Sea killer whales, all of which exert foraging pressure on their main prey, crystal krill (Euphausia cyrstallorophias) and silver fish (Pleuragramma antarcticum) in McMurdo Sound.
The investigators used a video- and acoustic-capable ROV, and standard biological and environmental sensors to quantify the abundance and distribution of phytoplankton, sea ice biota, prey, and relevant habitat data.� The sampling area included 37 stations across an 30 x 15 km section of McMurdo Sound, stratified by distance from the ice edge as a proxy for air-breathing predator access. This study will be among the first to assess top-down forcing in the Ross Sea ecosystem and will form the basis for�multidisciplinary studies in the future.
