Limno Runs - Locations, Dates, Codes for Lake Chemistry, Biology Samples

Summary

Abstract: 

This table is is a summary of "limon runs" - usually 2 or 3 per austral summer season, but may be one or, during extended seasons, over five per season. A limno run represents a complete set of samples from a lake - a useful code for tracking provenance used in the data lifecycle and chain of command too

Date Range: 

Saturday, January 1, 1994 to Wednesday, December 31, 2014
