Abstract: Since the 1963-1964 season, Japanese scientists have studied major and trace elements, nutrient matter, stable and radioactive isotopes and organic constituents in lakes and ponds and geological samples in the Dry Valleys and Ross Island of the McMurdo Sound region in the Antarctic. The results have been discussed in relation to salt origin, biological activity and the history of the lakes.
