Entry ID

GGD632

Summary

This data set contains active-layer and permafrost temperatures from two stations in Soendre Stroemfjord, Greenland. Snow depth and snow extent were also recorded. Thermometers at Station A (67 deg N, 50.8 deg W, 50 m asl) recorded temperatures once a day from September 1967 to February 1976. Thermometers at Station B (67 deg N, 50.8 deg W, 38 m asl) recorded temperatures once a day from September 1967 to August 1970; however, only bi-weekly averages are given for Station B. Data are in tab-delimited ASCII text format and are available via FTP.
