This data set includes the deployment of an anchored pressure transducer and suspended thermistor string in Lake Joyce, Pearse Valley, as part of a NASA Astrobiology: Exobiology and Evolutionary Biology project. Instruments were deployed prior to summer melt in December 2014 near a melt water stream and retrieved in December 2015. Thermistors were positioned in the fresh water lens under the ice cover, within the water column, and on the lake bottom.
