During the 95/96 Austral summer, the depth of the Lake Hoare and Lake Fryxell was measured at several points and dates using a piezometer. Lake Joyce and the West Lake Bonney's depth were also measured using this instrument at one location.
Between 26 November 2012 and 22 January 2013, a SonTek Argonaut-XR 1.5 MHz Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) was fixed at the bottom of the Limno Sampling Hole in Lake Hoare, looking downward through the water column. Every 30 seconds, the ADCP measured horizontal and vertical current velocities in six, 50-cm-thick cells between 0.5 and 3.5 m below the lake ice. The observation interval became deeper over time as the ADCP platform melted into the lake ice and the lake ice thinned.
