Summary
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 Lake Fryxell meteorology
station (in Taylor Valley).

The above data set includes water vapor density measurements.

To query air temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, radiation
and soil temperature of any station, please visit:
"http://huey.colorado.edu/queries/met_queries.jsp".

To query AVERAGE (DAILY and MONTHLY) air temperature, precipitation,
relative humidity, radiation and soil temperature of any station,
please visit: "http://huey.colorado.edu/queries/avg_met_queries.jsp".
