An important part of the McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project is monitoring spatial and temporal patterns, and processes that control bacterial production in perennial ice covered lakes. This data set quantifies bacteria concentrations at specific depths in Dry Valley lakes.
As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, a series of Taylor Valley lakes have been monitored for conductivity, temperature and depth. A Seabird 25 CTD (conductivity, temperature, and depth) instrument was used to record temperature profiles in perennial ice covered lakes.
