IPY- Plankton Dynamics in the McMurdo Dry Valley Lakes During the Transition to Polar Night - NSF-ANT06-31659
Entry ID: NSF-ANT06-31659

Abstract: Data collected on the permanently ice-covered lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys (MCM) during the late 1950's as part of the International Geophysical Year (IGY) showed that they were the only year round liquid water environments on the continent.
