Summary
Abstract: A large number of saline and freshwater lakes and ponds of the Dry Valley area and crater lakes behind the McMurdo station were visited for limnological study including Lake Fryxell of the Taylor Valley, Lake Vanda, Don Juan Pond and unnamed ponds in the Labyrinth of the Wright Valley in the Dry Valleys. Water samples were collected for all the visited lakes and ponds. Measurement of the samples ... View entire text

Quality The Japanese geochemical studies in the McMurdo Dry Valleys region started in the 1963/64 field seasons when the geochemists were invited to conduct investigations in the area. Investigations continued in the area until the 1986/87 field season. The New Zealand Antarctic program supported work from the 1970/71 seasons to the 1986/87 season.
The extensive studies provide geochemical ... View entire text
