Meteorological and snow data from Aboa 2007-2008Entry ID: FMI_ATMOSPHERE_AND_SNOW_ABOA_2007-2008
Abstract: The measurements were made in the vicinity of Aboa station at 73S, 13W.
The measurement period was December 2007 - January 2008.
The following quantities were measured:
At two sites, one over snow-covered glacier and another over blue ice:
Downwelling longwave radiation
Longwave radiation emitted by the surface
Downwelling shortwave radiation
Reflected shortwave radiation.
At one site over snow-covered glacier:
Wind and air temperature at five levels in the lowermost 6.5 m
Vertical profiles of snow temperature and density
Snow grain size and structure (photographs).
At two sites, one over snow-covered glacier and another over rocky area up on the nunatak:
Turbulent fluxes of heat and momentum at the height of 3.5 m.
