Lake Bonney Snowfence 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 Snowfence station (in Taylor Valley). Measurements at this temporary met station ceased on April 2006.

Date Range: 

Monday, January 1, 2001 to Sunday, December 31, 2006
