As part of the Long Term Ecological Research in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, meteorological data was collected from various locations throughout Beacon, Taylor, Wright and Victoria Valleys. These files contain daily data averages derived from the high resolution data measurements for the Taylor Glacier meteorology station.
Meteorological data is collected year-round at each of the stations in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica. After retrieving this data (usually every January), the parameters that are recorded are processed from level 0 (raw) to level 1 (processed, provided on the web). The raw data file descriptions and task lists summarize what was done to get from level 0 to level 1 for all station found at the following address: Meteorological Task Lists

During the 1994-1995 field season, the Taylor Glacier meteorological station was constructed at a latitude of 77 42.15845 S, longitude of 162 7.70264 E, and elevation of 334.1 meters above sea level. The station was set up to sample sensors every 30 seconds and send summary statistics (for example, averages and maximums) to solid-state storage modules every 20 minutes between November 21, 1994 and November 17, 1995 and every 15 minutes thereafter. This has resulted in approximately 20 values being recorded for final storage in every output interval.
