Lake Vanda thermocline temperature time series

Summary

Abstract: 

This data set includes the deployment of anchored thermistors Lake Vanda, Wright Valley, as part of an Antarctica New Zealand project. Thermistors were positioned at the sediment-water interface and 10 cm above the lake bottom within the thermocline at 24 m depth.

This dataset is funded through the New Zealand Foundation for Research, Science and Technology grant # CO1X0306 and the NASA grant NNX13AI60G, with USAP event G-063. This project is not funded through the MCM LTER program. MCM LTER hosts this synergistic project.
