These are the daily stats derived from the continuous stage (lake level), ice surface ablation, surface PAR and underwater PAR for Lake Fryxell, Hoare, East and West Bonney in Taylor Valley and Lake Miers, as part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys LTER project. MCM sometimes refers to these measurements as "blue box" data because the instrumentation used to be housed in a blue box.
Knowledge of the McMurdo Dry Valley (MDV) lakes is limited by winter access, a period which is most relevant in understanding the habitability of other icy worlds and critical to understanding the overall function of these lakes. Owing to the lack of winter access, data that normally require human presence are incomplete.
