Lower Miers Stream gage measurements, 1990-91

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. This metadata record describes the hydrological data recorded at the Lower Miers gage station during the 1990-91 season.
