more algae, higher altitudes, flushed at lower

subglacial lake = low nutrient, low microbial diversity

Volcanisms releases water full of microbes into the glacier. volcanoes under greeland and Lake Vostok (Antarctica)

P released = Mississippi = 400,000tons p/yr

Warming up, microbes up

Glacier bed: aerobes o2 from o2 rich basal melt of supraglacial melt

Darkening of ice reduces albedo and increases melt

solute conc cryoconite holes = respiration autumn, photosynthesis summer

Pigment Study: carotenoid pigment increased resistence to freeze thaw and solar radiation. Antarctic bacteria have increased resistance.

3 macro environments: in vien, on grain surface, in ice crystal

Ice algae abundant below the snow line. moves with the line
