Stream Feature Coordinates (1994)

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 glacial meltwater stream attributes of the region. Optical topographic surveys were performed to produce a layout of the area studied. This file provides the northing, easting, and orthogonal height information for the gage boxes, flumes and rebars set up for Andersen, House, Canada, Delta and Green Creek. NOTE: These points were omitted from the plot files for the individual sites ( found in the Stream Transect Coordinate List file), since in most cases they fall outside the map area.
