Amery Ice Shelf - hot water drill borehole, AM01 Brancker thermistor data - 2011/2012 data
Entry ID: AAS_4096_AM01_Brancker


Summary
Abstract: AM01 borehole drilled January 2002.

AM01b borehole drilled mid-December 2003.
No new thermistor strings deployed.

Consult Readme file for detail of data files and formats.

2011-2012 data may be final data from the unit owing to battery failure.

The original project for this dataset was ASAC 1164, but recent data fall under the auspices of project AAS 4096.

Quality
See Readme file ... data collected as header, then 8 x celsius temperature columns for each of 8 x thermistors on the cable ... uppermost sensor in leftmost column of data ... data collected at 0.5 hour sampling rate for several days after initial installation, then 6 hour rate ... batteries fail in loggers after weeks to months, but can be replaced annually ...

Note - depths provided in spatial coverage are referenced back to sea level.

The minimum depth of 65 metres asl refers to the height of the ice surface.
