Lithium isotopic composition of the McMurdo Dry Valleys aquatic systems

Abstract:

The McMurdo Dry Valleys are the largest ice-free area in Antarctica and include several terminal lake basins. These include Lakes Hoare, Fryxell, Bonney, and Vanda. The hydrology of the lakes is controlled by the inputs of glacial meltwater and loss by sublimation of ice covers. Despite the extremely dilute inflow waters, the lakes range in salinity from hypersaline to fresh due in large part to their landscape position and climatic history. Although the aqueous geochemistry of the region has...
