LTER Automatic Weather Network

Project Description
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. Several temporary meteorological stations have been set-up on Canada and Taylor glaciers since the LTER started. Data are accessible on the metadata page for each station.
