Group: Summary

   Firn temperature from a depth of about ten meters provides a close estimate of 
   mean annual surface air temperature. This data collection is a compilation of 
   temperature measurements dating back prior to 1956 and the International 
   Geophysical Year, including measurements from several major recent surveys. 
   Data cover the entire continental ice sheet and several ice shelves, but 
   coverage density is generally low.
