Geochemistry data of cryoconite holes collected from Canada, Commonwealth, Howard, Hughes and Taylor glaciers in Nov 2001 and Jan 2002

As part of a collaborative investigation between researchers at Rice University, Arkansas State University, University of Rochester, and Ohio State University, lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys were sampled at discreet depth intervals during the 2005-2006 field season. Sample splits were subsequently analyzed for chemical and isotopic composition of both gases and dissolved ions, as well as dissolved organic carbon. In addition, cryogenic salts were sampled in the surrounding lake shores in order to determine the salt sources.
