Summary
Abstract: The seasonal melt regime of the Wright Lower Glacier, Wright Valley, Dry Valleys, Antarctica was investigated and monitored over three field seasons (04-05, 05-06 and 06-07). The water cycle, which is an integral part of the terrestrial biophysical processes in the Dry Valley ecosystem, is driven by the meltwater from the surrounding glaciers. Melt generation, drainage pathways and fluxes into the ... View entire text
