In this field research project, we investigated the soil hydrology, biogeochemistry, and microbial ecology along hydrologic gradients in soils adjacent to streams and lakes in Wright and Taylor Valleys. Data was collected from 11 sampling plots in the 2004-05 and 2005-06 austral summer field seasons.
