Summary
Abstract: This is the Antarctic component of the GLACIOCLIM observatory managed at the LGGE (Laboratoire de Glaciologie et de Géophysique de l'Environnement), to detect, monitor and understand climate and mass balance variability and change in the glacial environment. GLACIOCLIM is recognized and supported by the French Polar Institute (IPEV), the Institut National des Sciences de l'Univers (INSU), the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), the UJF (Université Joseph-Fourrier, Grenoble) and Grenoble's Sciences of the Universe Observatory (OSUG). The GLACIOLCIM-SAMBA program proposed here is the Antarctic component of the GLACIOCLIM observatory, for which the logistical and financial support of IPEV is requested. IPEV support since 2003 has made it possible the set-up of the full basic observing system, The program maintains surface mass balance networks at Cap Prud'homme (CP, summer and winter surveys), along a 150 km transect (1 survey/yr), and at Concordia (1 survey/year or more). Snow water equivalent is obtained through accumulation stake measurements, snow density being assessed by shallow firn cores. Meteorological instruments are also be deployed near CP and special meteorological and glaciological observing periods are organized.

Quality
Data processing and distribution of data are performed in order to allow a direct use for research. However, data are not fully processed to avoid insertion of subjective data corrections. A second quality control of data may be important in order to remove doubtful data when particular conditions where observed in the field. field reports are available at http://www-lgge.ujf-grenoble.fr/ServiceObs/SiteWebAntarc/reports.html


Access Constraints
Data access is free and data are fully available. However, please contact Glacioclim staff to inquire for latest information, status, availability and recommandations. Also please keep Glacioclim Staff informed of your uses of the GLACIOCLIM-SAMBA data. This is important for the long-term survival of the observatory.


Use Constraints
1. Data may not be used for commercial applications.
2. Please cite data provider(s).
