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 the area, volume represented in a given layer, and volume represented below a given depth for various depths in these lakes.
As part of a collaborative investigation between researchers at Rice University, Arkansas State University, University of Rochester, and Ohio State University, lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys were sampled at discreet depth intervals during the 2005-2006 field season. Sample splits were subsequently analyzed for chemical and isotopic composition of both gases and dissolved ions, as well as dissolved organic carbon. In addition, cryogenic salts were sampled in the surrounding lake shores in order to determine the salt sources.
