Investigation of the physics (heat balance) and chemistry of Lake Vanda, Wright Valley, 1961-1962
Entry ID: K042_1961_1962_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The first study of the physics and chemistry of Lake Vanda and the geology of the surrounding area were investigated in the 1961-1962 field season. Twelve holes were drilled at 1000ft intervals along two lines, one along the length of the lake and the other across its widest part. Water temperatures were measured at 5 ft intervals. Density and chemical composition were measured at 5ft intervals ... View entire text
