Canada Glacier Meteorological Station Measurements

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, meteorological data was collected from various locations throughout Taylor, Wright and Victoria Valleys. These files contain data for the Commonwealth Glacier meteorology station (in Taylor Valley). 
 
These data correspond to the met station located at the Canada Glacier
