Study TypeOther
Abstract Snow algae are poly-extremophilic microalgae and important primary colonisers and producers on glaciers and snow fields. Depending on their pigmentation they cause green or red mass blooms during the melt season. This decreases surface albedo and thus further enhances snow and ice melting. Although .. [more]
