Meteorological observations from Antarctic Automatic Weather Stations: Dismal and Kirkwood Islands 2001-2003, GLOBEC.
Entry ID: awsD_awsK_SO


Summary
Abstract: Meteorological data are reported at hourly intervals from Antarctic Automatic Weather Stations located on Dismal and Kirkwood Islands, May 2001 - April 2003. Measured parameters include barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity. Computed parameters include wind velocity as vectors, wind stress and heat flux.
