Data from balloon-borne radiosondes launched from Larsen Ice Shelf, 2011
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/00586

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 a camp on Larsen Ice shelf camp and Rothera base. 24 radiosondes were launched from the Larsen Ice Shelf camp during the period 8-31 January 2011.
