F6 Snowfence Station Daily Averages (2001-2009)

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research program (MCM LTER), meteorological data is collected from various locations throughout the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica. This package contains daily averages derived from 15-minute data generated by the F6 Snowfence Station, located in Taylor Valley.  Data gaps in 15 minute data were not filled to produce this dataset.  

Date Range: 

January 11, 2001 to November 27, 2009
