Monitoring of environmental parameters
Entry ID: 018-93_01

Abstract: The data set contains information on the main meteorological and micro-climatic
variables of the Cape Shirreff area in Livingston Island. Three stations were
installed in Daniel Beach, Paso Ancho and Toqui Hill. The measurements in the
three stations were made with automatic recorders (dataloggers) LICOR LI-1000,
sensors of radiation and air and ground temperature (LICOR), relative humidity
sensors (VAISALA) ,and analogical anemometers (WILH-LAMBRECHT).

Quality The quality of the data varies depending on the registered parameter. The
radiation measurements are data integrated every 24 hours, hourly averages and
maximum and minimum values. The temperature registries are hour averages,
maximum and minimum values. The relative humidity is an hourly average, maximum
and minimum values. The precipitations are data integrated every 24 hours and
the route of the wind corresponds to an integration of all the campaign.
Access Constraints Restricted, with the approval of the main investigator
Use Constraints All the scientific data of this report are original and they have not been
published, therefore they can not be reproduced nor to be used in any form
without the authorization of the project leader.
