Snow station (thermistor string) measurements from FINNARP 2009 snow teamEntry ID: FINNARP2009_snowstation
Abstract: Data set contains data from two snow stations installed in Antarctica Dronning Maud Land during FINNARP 2009 expedition. The snow stations measure temperature of the snow pack from the snow surface to depth of four meters. Both snow stations have 15 thermistors. The measurement interval is 5 minutes and storing interval is 15 minutes. The stored value is average over three measurements.
At the ... moment the available data covers time period from beginning of December 2009 to end of January 2010. The rest of the data set will be downloaded during FINNARP 2010 expedition. The the data set will cover year 2010.
Snow 1: 72 deg 45.244' S, 14 deg 18.300' W
Snow 2: 73 deg 06.318' S, 13 deg 09.942' W
