Lake Bonney Snowfence Meteorological Station Daily Averages (2001-2007)

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, meteorological data was collected from various locations throughout Taylor, Wright and Victoria Valleys. These files contain data for the Lake Bonney Snowfence station (in Taylor Valley). Measurements at this temporary met station ceased on April 2006.

Here we offer the daily averages based on the 15-min frequency data for the Lake Bonney Snowfence station.

Date Range: 

January 19, 2001 to January 1, 2007
