Limnological Methods for the McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research Program

McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research Program

This comprehensive limnological methods manual (134-page PDF) from the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program provides a step-by-step guide for several field experiments. Protocols include measuring primary productivity using 14C, Chlorophyll a extraction, plankton, bacteria, and virus enumeration and biomass, ion and carbon aqueous chemistry, and dissolved oxygen by Winkler Titration.
