Abstract/Summary The McMurdo Dry Valleys (MDVs) of Antarctica are known to exhibit significant climate variability yet the cause of this variability is not fully understood. Foehn winds resulting from topographic modification of airflow in the lee of mountain barriers are frequently experienced in the MDVs, where they cause dramatic warming and can affect environmental processes such as aeolian activity and melt-water generation.
