Data of dissolved gas, tritium, stable isotopes, and major ion for Lake Vanda (Wright Valley), Lake Fryxell (Taylor Valley), Lake Hoare (Taylor Valley), and Lake Joyce (Pearce Valley): 2005-2006 Antarctic Season
2005-01-01 to 2006-12-31
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.
