Summary
Abstract: The long term hydrology/glaciology study carried out in the McMurdo Dry Valleys was conducted to gain information on the hydrological behaviour of the Dry Valleys rivers and lakes, particularly for the insight they provide into climatic change. Identifications of real trends in climate cannot be based on observations at only one site as it may be unrepresentative, and therefore it was proposed in ... View entire text
