The McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project monitors patterns of inorganic material transport in perennial ice-capped lakes. This data set addresses this core area of research and quantifies dissolved inorganic carbon concentrations at specific depths in McMurdo Dry Valley lakes. Dissolved inorganic carbon is also necessary for the computation of primary productivity.

This table is is a summary of "limno runs" - usually two or three per austral summer season, but may be one or, during extended seasons, over five per season. A limno run represents a complete set of samples from a lake, providing a useful code for tracking provenance used in the data lifecycle.
