Automatic weather station measurements for debris covered ice, bare ice and snow accumulation area over two summer season on the McMurdo Ice Shelf
Entry ID: K053_2003_2005_NZ_2

Abstract: An automatic weather station (AWS) was installed in three separate surface types in the vicinity of Bratina Island on the McMurdo Ice Shelf (MIS) over two summer seasons, in order to identify the processes influencing the formation of meltwater on the MIS. The three different surface types were debris covered ice, clean ice and accumulation area snow. Variables measured directly include, incoming ... View entire text
