Group: Summary

   The Automatic Weather Station (AWS) Project, funded by the NSF Office of Polar 
   Programs, involves collecting meteorological data from an array of automatic 
   weather stations in Antarctica, Greenland, and Peru.  Data collection in 
   Antarctica began in 1980.

   Data are available in tabular ASCII format via the University of Wisconsin's 
   AWS Project Web site at http://uwamrc.ssec.wisc.edu/aws/.  Both raw and 
   'corrected' versions of the data are available via ftp.  Information about 
   data processing and station characteristics is also provided.
