High frequency, 1-min pressure measurements of continuous stage (lake level) and ice surface ablation from Lake Hoare, Antarctica from 2012-2016

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the McMurdo Dry Valleys Long Term Ecological Research program, continuous stage (lake level) and ice surface ablation were collected at Lake Hoare, located in Taylor Valley, Antarctica. This package contains data measured at 1-minute intervals from Nov 2012 to Apr 2013, Nov 2013 to Feb 2014, and Nov 2014 to Oct 2016.

Date Range: 

October 28, 2012 to October 22, 2016
