Abstract
During the melt seasons of 2015/6 and 2016/7, water pressure gages were deployed on the McMurdo Ice Shelf to observe water depth in supraglacial lakes and streams. This was done in support of research directed toward understanding how filling and draining supraglacial lakes would induce ice-shelf flexure and fracture.
