Group: Summary

   This data set contains borehole temperatures from Ilulissat, west Greenland 
   (69°N, 51°N, 44 m asl), recorded from 21 thermistors at depths of 0.25 
   m, 0.5 m, 0.75 m, 1 m, 1.25 m, 1.5 m, 1.75 m, 2 m, 2.5 m, 3 m, 3.5 m, 4 m, 4.5 
   m, 5 m, 6 m, 7 m, 8 m, 9 m, 11 m, 13 m, and 15 m below the surface. Snow 
   depth, snow extent, and surface air temperature were also recorded. 
   Thermometers recorded temperatures once a day from 06 November 1968 to 15 June 
   1982; however, this data set only contains bi-weekly averages. Data are in 
   tab-delimited ASCII text format and are available via FTP.
