Summary
Abstract: Geochemical studies on the tritium chronology of Lake Vanda, the natural abundance of nitrogen isotopes in soil and evaporites in the Dry Valleys and observations of the sequential changes in the saline lakes, especially Don Juan Pond, were planned to search for the salt origin and to elucidate the geological history of the area. Glacial ice, subsurface ice, subsurface layered salt deposits, ... 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
