EXPLORER'S COVE METEOROLOGICAL STATION MEASUREMENTS: Air TemperatureEntry ID: LTER_MCM_EXC_MET_TEMP
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 Explorer's Cove
The above data set includes air temperature measurements as recorded
by temperature probes ... and thermocouples.
