PSU in Antarctica!
November 2000 - January 2001

Dr. Andrew G. Fountain is a collaborator in the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research Project, a collaborative project consisting of investigators from 7 other institutions.  For information about the entire project please see the main web page for the whole project (MCM-LTER).  PSU's contribution to the project is to study the activity and meltwater production from the glaciers in the dry valleys.  Glaciers provide the only source of water to the streams and lakes in the dry valleys, which in turn provide vital habitat for life in the valleys.
