Abstract: Matlab files containing raw data collected using the program "HC2S3snowwind.CR1" running on Campbell Scientific CR1000 dataloggers. Datalogger "C" was used during all ice stations. On the 8th of October a second mast and logger ("A") were installed on what became the final day of Ice Station 4, and both loggers were deployed at stations 6 and 7, with "C" containing the longer records for each ...

Quality During ice station 6, one of the anemometers ("C3") was not operational on install, but un-froze (problem was likely due to ice buildup from storage in the 'tweens) within 1 hour and the record following that time was in good accord with the expected values for that height, based on the above and below values.
