Lawson Creek drains Rhone Glacier, an alpine glacier adjacent to the Taylor Glacier and flows into the west end of the west lobe of Lake Bonney. The stream flows through a well-defined, steep-sided channel with a moderate to steep gradient and step-pool morphology. Bed particles are unevenly arranged, rather than a flat pavement as in other stream reaches with similar gradients. Stream length: 0.3 km.
Hydrological, biological, chemical, and physical property measurements have been made for a number of McMurdo Dry Valley streams and lakes.
