Group: Summary

   To determine the effects of oil spills on soil temperature and moisture, soil 
   climate stations were built at existing contamination sites -- Scott Base, 
   Marble Point, Bull Pass, and nearby control sites in the Ross Sea Region, 
   Antarctica. Sensors recorded soil temperature, soil moisture, air temperature, 
   relative humidity, solar radiation, net radiation, wind speed, and wind 
   direction. Data extend from January 1999 through December 2001. Data from 
   individual stations are available in tab-delimited ASCII text files. An Excel 
   spreadsheet contains the same data compiled together in a single file. NSIDC 
   currently provides these summary data via ftp; the full soil temperature and 
   moisture data set is available from Ron Paetzold, USDA.
