As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, the growth of benthic cyanobacteria-dominated mats in the lakes have been monitored. This dataset shows chlorophyll-a levels associated with the benthic mats. Values are provided for various depths of Lake Hoare during the 1996-97 field season, both with and without correction for phaeopigments.

An important part of the McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project is monitoring of spatial and temporal patterns, and processes that control primary production in perennial ice-covered lakes. This data set addresses this core area of research and quantifies chlorophyll-a concentrations at specific depths in McMurdo Dry Valley lakes.
