Abstract:

During the summers of 1963-1964, 1964-65, and 1965-66, geochemical studies were done of several lakes in the wide regions of rock outcroppings in Victoria Land of Antarctica. In summer of 1964-65, Miers Valley and Lake Miers were specifically studied. This valley is one of the Dry Valleys and the deposites of evaporites are interesting with respect to the formation of salt lakes present in the Dry Valleys. This report describes the characteristics and the occurrence of these evaporites, as well as the climate and feographic features of Miers Valley. Author
