Summary
Abstract: The processes controlling the production of meltwater on the McMurdo Ice Shelf, in particular the energy partitioning and turbulent fluxes at the ice shelf surface, was investigated by the collection of standard meteorological variables. An automatic weather station was installed from 22nd October 2003 to January 17th 2004 with data including: wind direction, wind speed (at 63.5 and 196cm), ... View entire text
