Entry ID

GGD205

Summary

This data set consists of micrometeorological tower data from Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands (periantarctic). Parameters include summer heat flux balance, soil heat flux, and active layer temperature. Measurements were collected by data logger every minute, between December and February of 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996. 1998, 1999, and 2000. Air temperature and active layer temperature were measured annualy in 2000, 2001, and 2002.
