Onyx River


[STC008] Alongside McMurdo Sound, the Lower Wright Glacier is where the 20-mile-long Onyx River begins its journey into Lake Vanda.

The glacial stream, which is made up of melted ice from Antarctica, runs the majority of the time during the brief summer season in Antarctica, which lasts from the end of December to the end of March.

Depending on the conditions of the surrounding environment, the river may or may not make it all the way to the lake.

Researchers are able to examine the Onyx River because to meteorological stations that have been placed along its length.

Occasionally, floods causes erosion of the river to the point that it is possible to raft along its length.

In fact, that’s what some New Zealand researchers did in 1984 — a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
