As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, a series of bodies of water (stream and lakes) have been monitored for dissolved organic compounds. Using fluorometers to detect the emission signatures of several organic compounds, we re-analize water samples acquired in the context of other MCM LTER monitoring programs.
An important part of the McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) is monitoring of spatial and temporal patterns, and processes that control bacterial production in perennial ice-covered lakes. This data set quantifies thymidine uptake by bacteria, which can be used to estimate bacterial production.
