Del 13C ratios were measured for mosses collected from terrestrial, emergent and submerged sites in pond 13 of Imnavait Creek, North Slope Alaska 1990.

Abstract: 

Del 13C ratios were measured for mosses collected from terrestrial, emergent and submerged sites in pond 13 of Imnavait Creek. Terrestrial mosses were collected from dry sites near the pond margin, emergent mosses were collected from the littoral zone of the pond and submerged mosses were collected from deep in the pond.

Methods: 

Moss samples were collected from terrestrial, emergent and submerged sites of pond 13. Terrestrial mosses were collected from dry sites near the pond margin, emergent mosses were collected from the littoral zone of the pond and submerged mosses were collected from deep in the pond. The mosses were sampled at 0.5 to 1.0 cm intervals, dried, ground to a fine powder and prepared for stable isotope analysis.

del 13C = [(13C/12C sample / 13C/12C standard) - 1] x 1000
