Garwood River Gage Measurements, 1988-91

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, a systematic sampling program has been undertaken to monitor the glacial meltwater streams in that region. These tables contain data pertaining to continuous monitored water quality and quantity parameters measured with automatic recording devices on streams in this region.The metadata here describes pre-LTER hydrology measurements at the Garwood River gage, from 1988 to 1991.

Date Range: 

January 1, 1988 to December 31, 1991
