10 m firn temperature data: LGB traverses 1990-95
Entry ID: LGB_10m_traverse

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: The Lambert Glacier Basin (LGB) series of five oversnow traverses were conducted from 1989-95. Ten metre depth (10 m) firn temperatures, as a proxy indicator of annual mean surface temperature at a site, were recorded approximately every 30 km along the 2014 km main traverse route from LGB00 (68.6543 S, 61.1201 E) near Mawson Station, to LGB72 (69.9209 S, 76.4933 E) near Davis Station.

Quality Small gaps in the data arose from partial steam hole closure over the course of the intervening period (nominally 1 year) precluding the possibility of lowering the probe to the appropriate 10 m depth. The 10 m firn temperatures were measured at sites spaced 30 km apart around the basin using a digital readout from a platinum resistance thermometer placed in a steam hole drilled one season and ...
