Miers Valley Meteorological Station Measurements, since 2012

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 Beacon, Taylor, Wright and Victoria Valleys. These files contain data for the Miers Valley meteorology station. This station started reporting on January 13, 2012, and is located to the south west of the Lake Miers.

Date Range: 

Friday, January 13, 2012 to Thursday, December 31, 2015
