Abstract: This record is concerned with the measurement of deterioration processes affecting historic sites. Temperature and relative humidity data were collected from sensors inside Mawson's Huts. The data are in the form of Excel spreadsheets that enable plotting of temperature and relative humidity variation at various locations.
