Group: Summary

   This data set includes meteorological measurements from 32 climatological 
   stations in Centre d'Etudes Nordiques, Quebec, Canada. The stations are in 
   areas of frozen rock, permafrost mound, clayey mound, silty mound, tidal 
   marsh, shore terrace, glacial till, permafrost plateau with snow patch, or 
   under or near airport runways. Parameters include ground temperature, air 
   temperature, relative humidity, and snow depth. Ground temperature was 
   measured at 2 to 25 m below the surface at irregular intervals.
