Bathymetric Polynomials

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, bathymetric data was collected for Lakes Hoare, Fryxell and Bonney. This table contains third order polynomial equations to fit the area vs. depth data of these lakes.
