Lake Fryxell Meteorological Station Monthly 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 Fryxell meteorology station (in Taylor Valley).  Here we describe and offer the monthly averages derived from the Lake Fryxell 15-min data. 

Date Range: 

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