Stream Chemistry / Dissolved Inorganic Carbon

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, a systematic aqueous geochemical sampling program has been undertaken. A series of terrestrial water samples have been collected and analyzed for dissolved inorganic carbon levels. This dataset shows concentrations of dissolved inorganic carbon found in various streams of the McMurdo Dry Valleys.
