Group: Summary

   This data set provides air temperature (1.5 m above ground surface) data from 
   the Kanchanjunga Himal, eastern Nepal. Air temperature was monitored from 
   November 1998 to November 1999 at three locations (Tengkoma, Lhonak, and 
   Ghunsa) at altitudes of 3410, 4750 and 6012 m ASL. Although temperature was 
   measured at one-hour intervals, only daily mean values are provided.
