As part of the Long Term Ecological Research in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, bathymetric data was collected for Lakes Hoare, Fryxell and Bonney. This table contains the values for depth, perimeter length, polygon area and total area per contour used for contour map digitizing.
In the Antarctic Dry Valleys, soil polygons are prominent features of the landscape and may be key units for scaling local ecological information to the greater region. We examined polygon soils in each of the 3 basins of Taylor Valley, Antarctica. Our objectives were to characterize variability in soil biogeochemistry and biodiversity at local to regional scales, and to test the influence of soil properties upon invertebrate communities.
