Weather data, Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica, 2004-2006
GB/NERC/BAS/AEDC/00374

Summary

Abstract:
Weather data collected between 30th December 2004 and 20th February 2006 as part of the RABID project on Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica. Wind speed, wind direction, temperature, pressure, relative humidity, and solar radiation data were recorded using an ONSET HOBO AWS (Automatic Weather Station) data logger and sensors.

The RABID project employed hot-water drilling techniques, down-hole instrumentation, as well as surface geophysical measurements, to form an integrated programme studying ice dynamics, basal conditions, climate and glacial history.

Funding was provided by the UK NERC Antarctic Funding Initiative (AFI).
