Lake Brownworth Meteorological Station Daily Averages

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 Brownworth meteorology station (in Wright Valley). These data are the daily averages derived from the 15-min frequency data for the Lake Brownworth Meteorological Station Measurements.

Date Range: 

Saturday, January 1, 1994 to Thursday, December 31, 2015
