The McMurdo Dry Valleys are a row of largely snow-free valleys in Antarctica, located within Victoria Land west of McMurdo Sound. The Dry Valleys experience extremely low humidity and surrounding mountains prevent the flow of ice from nearby glaciers. The rocks here are granites and gneisses, and glacial tills dot this bedrock landscape, with loose gravel covering the ground.

Antarctica project - Lesson plans
Antarctica project - Lesson plans. The Dry Valleys region of Antarctica is one of the world's most extreme deserts, but that's only the start of its peculiarities. Where are the Dry Valleys in Antarctica? How big are they? The Dry Valleys are a very unusual part of Antarctica, they exist due to the positioning of the Transantarctic Mountain Range which force air flowing over them upwards so they lose their moisture, the valleys therefore are in a precipitation shadow (snow and rain doesn't fall).
