Summary
Abstract: Abstract: The measurements were made in the vicinity of the Finnish Antarctic research station Aboa (73S, 13W). The measurement period was December 2010 - January 2011.

The following quantities were measured:

Over snow-covered glacier and blue ice:
- downwelling longwave radiation
- longwave radiation emitted by the surface
- downwelling shortwave radiation
- reflected shortwave radiation

Cloud cover: automatically by camera every 5 min, visual observations every 6h

Over snow-covered glacier:
- vertical profiles of wind speed and air temperature in the lowermost 10 m (2 weather masts)
- turbulent fluxes of heat and momentum
- vertical profiles of wind speed, air temperature and humidity with maximum range of 2000 meters (Vaisala DigiCORA tethersonde system)
- vertical profiles of wind speed and direction and echo intensity with maximum range of 800 meters (sodar)
- vertical profiles of wind speed and direction, temperature and humidity with maximum range of up to 1000 meters (UAV)
- vertical profiles of snow temperature and density
- snow grain size and structure (photographs)
