Water tracks and permafrost in Taylor Valley, Antarctica: Extensive and shallow groundwater connectivity in a cold desert ecosystem
Water tracks are zones of high soil moisture that route water downslope over the ice table in polar environments. We present physical, hydrological, and geochemical evidence collected in TaylorExpand
Permafrost distribution and active‐layer depths in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica
The McMurdo Dry Valleys (MDVs) constitute the largest ice-free area (6700 km2) in Antarctica. Permafrost is ubiquitous in the region and is present as ground ice or buried ice, ice-cementedExpand
High-resolution elevation mapping of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica, and surrounding regions
Abstract. We present detailed surface elevation measurements for the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica derived from aerial lidar surveys flown in the austral summer of 2014–2015 as part of an effort toExpand
Chronology of a Wisconsin age proglacial lake in the Miers Valley, Antarctica
Abstract Mapping and oxygen isotopic, C-14, and U/Th analyses of lacustrine sediments have shown that a lake (Glacial Lake Trowbridge) proglacial to the Ross Sea I Ice Sheet occupied Miers ValleyExpand
Deep groundwater and potential subsurface habitats beneath an Antarctic dry valley
TLDR
Results from an airborne transient electromagnetic sensor are interpreted as an indication that liquid, with sufficiently high solute content, exists at temperatures well below freezing and considered within the range suitable for microbial life. Expand
Radiocarbon distribution and the effect of legacy in lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica
The water of the ice-covered lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys is derived primarily from glacial melt streams and to a lesser extent permafrost seeps and subglacial outflow. The result is a mixture ofExpand
Late Pleistocene-Holocene marine conditions in the Ross Sea, Antarctica: evidence from the diatom record
Statistical analyses of diatom assemblages from radiocarbon-dated sediment cores were used to reconstruct changing palaeoceanographic conditions in the western and west-central Ross Sea, Antarctica,Expand
GPR Reflection Profiles of Sedimentary Deposits in Lower Taylor Valley , Antarctica
Landforms within Lower Taylor Valley of the Dry Valleys of Antarctica have been hypothesized to be either glacial deposits such as eskers and moraines, or deposits unique to polar glacial lakes suchExpand
Helicopter-borne transient electromagnetics in high-latitude environments: An application in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica
ABSTRACTThe McMurdo Dry Valleys are a polar desert in coastal Antarctica, where glaciers, permafrost, ice-covered lakes, and ephemeral summer streams coexist. Liquid water is found at the surfaceExpand
The Impact of a Large-Scale Climate Event on Antarctic Ecosystem Processes
Extreme climate and weather events, such as a drought, hurricanes, or ice storms, can strongly imprint ecosystem processing and may alter ecosystem structure. Ecosystems in extreme environments areExpand
