Harnish Creek at F11 Gage Daily Averages

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 averaged derived from the data pertaining to continuous monitored water quality and quantity parameters measured with automatic recording devices on streams in this region. Specifically, this record describes in detail the daily averages for the hydrological measurements at the gage of the McMurdo Harnish Creek at the F11 site, from 1996 to 2000.

Date Range: 

December 25, 1996 to January 29, 2000
