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 Commonwealth Glacier meteorology station (in Taylor Valley).
To query air temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, radiation and soil temperature of any station, please visit: http://huey.colorado.edu/queries/met_queries.jsp.
To query AVERAGE (DAILY and MONTHLY) air temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, radiation and soil temperature of any station, please visit: http://huey.colorado.edu/queries/avg_met_queries.jsp.
