Description

Lake Bonney is a saline lake with permanent ice cover at the western end of Taylor Valley in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Victoria Land, Antarctica. It is 7 km long and up to 900 meters wide. A narrow channel only 50 meters wide (Lake Bonney at Narrows) separates the lake into East Lake Bonney (3.32 km²) and West Lake Bonney (0.99 km²). To the north and south of the lake lie peaks that are over 1500 m above sea level, and the Taylor Glacier is positioned to the west of the lake. It is 130 feet (40 m) deep and is perpetually trapped under 12 feet (3.7 m) to 15 feet (4.6 m) of ice. It was first visited by the British Antarctic Expedition of 1901-1904. It was named by the Scott expedition of 1910-1913, for Thomas George Bonney, professor of geology at University College London, England from 1877 to 1901. after wikipedia, more at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Bonney_ Will open in a new tab or window(Antarctica)
