Data from balloon-borne radiosondes launched at Rothera Station, 2011
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/00585

Summary

Abstract:
Radiosonde data were collected on and around the Antarctic Peninsula during the NERC-funded Orographic Flows and the Climate of the Antarctic Peninsula (OFCAP) project. Atmospheric conditions on the upwind (western) and downwind (eastern) sides of the mountains were measured using these balloon-borne radiosondes released from the Larsen Ice shelf camp and Rothera base. A total of 52 radiosondes were launched from Rothera Station during the 2010-11 field season.
