Priscu Stream Gage Daily Averages

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, a systematic sampling program has been undertaken to monitor the glacial meltwater streams in that region. These tables contain data pertaining to continuous monitored water quality and quantity parameters measured with automatic recording devices on streams in this region. In this document, we report metadata for the Priscu Stream gage daily averages hydrological recordings, which began in Dec 1993 and ended in Jan 2011. Measurements stopped due to lake level rise and sedimentation of control, no new site was constructed.

Date Range: 

Tuesday, December 21, 1993 to Wednesday, January 16, 2013
