Abstract:

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.

Purpose:

Scientific Research
