Local meteorology drives and shapes all ecological systems. One of the
first objectives of the McMurdo LTER was to establish a meteorological
network that would gather representative weather data year-round from
the dry valleys. The McMurdo LTER Automatic Weather Network (LAWN)
currently consists of 13 ... stations Stations are now operational at
Explorer's Cove, in Beacon Valley and on the shores of Lakes Fryxell,
Hoare, Bonney, Brownworth, Vanda, and Vida and on the Commonwealth,
Howard, and Taylor glaciers. Stations routinely sample sensors every
30 seconds and send summary statistics (averages, maximums, etc.) to
solid-state storage modules every 15 minutes.
