Garwood Valley Meteorological Station Measurements, 2010-2011

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 Beacon, Taylor, Wright and Victoria Valleys. These files contain data for the Garwood Valley meteorology station. This station reported data for about a year, during 2011. On January 11, 2012 the station was disconnected and relocated to the Miers Valley. Met data for Garwood can be obtained visiting the Garwood Ice Cliff Met Station.

Date Range: 

January 27, 2011 to January 11, 2012
