Welcome to the 2014 McMurdo Dry Valleys LTER Site Review, Jan 20-24


(A) Changes in connectivity mediated by geographic variation among valleys:1) aeolian (gray arrow) and freshwater fluxes interact with flow‐through lake, 2) aeolian and freshwater fluxes from distal sources carried by a large stream, 3) aeolian and freshwater fluxes from near‐coast sources with closed basin lakes, and 4) piedmont glacier blocks all but aeolian sources. (B) Location map of MDV. (C) Thermokarst erosion of Garwood Stream after a warm summer hydrological pulse event.
