Lake Bonney 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 Lake Bonney meteorology station (in Taylor Valley).The Lake Bonney metereological data spans from 1993 until now, however, it is possible that the last few months are not posted -- these datamay be undergoing review (quality checks, controls, etc).

Date Range: 

Friday, January 1, 1993 to Thursday, December 31, 2015
